    I use DIF...buy it at Lowe's..hot water saturate wait 10 minutes scape off with putty knife..then reapply to get glue off..do small area at a time..if it peels easy then use DIF to clean glue residue. Good luck..I have removed a lot of wallpaper in my life this is truly the best way I found...do not use steamer you will just get frustrated

    Our entire house had original wall paper when we moved in...so much to remove! I loved this cheap little tool called " paper tiger". It scores the wall paper without going through to the drywall underneath. This way, when you spray the wall, the moisture penetrates through the tough waterproof coating on the wallpaper and dissolves the glue underneath. There are wallpaper removal sprays available, however I just used a warm water and vinegar spray. I used a plastic putty knife to scrape any bits off, a metal one can damage the sheet rock.
