Sally-Charles Evans on Oct 15, 2016With stubborn wallpaper I use what is called a 'paper tiger'. It is a round, palm sized plastic piece with plastic gear like teeth. You roll it around on the wall and it punches little holes that then let in the warm water that you spray on the paper. It works like magic and doesn't damage the wall.
Marty Grimson on Nov 14, 2016If removing wallpaper from walls that were never painted or primed before paper was applied, you're in for some hard, frustrating work. If you use a steamer, you oversaturate the wall and the surface of the wallboard comes off with the paper. I have tried everything mentioned above plus the professional steamer. Folks, it's easier to replace the wall!
