    In a bucket, combine hot water, liquid dish soap, and a heaping tablespoon of baking soda. For particularly stubborn adhesive, add one cup of vinegar for every gallon of water used. Next, soak a sponge in the solution, squeeze out the excess liquid, and gently rub the sponge over a small section of wallpaper glue. Got the above info from a Bob Vila article of 'Thyis Old House".

    heated Cascade liquid dish washersoap, not powder(though that might work) as hot as you can stand. brush on wallpaper and brush on as you peal off front and back. Works great. good luck!!
