Step 1: Penetrate the paper Score the wallpaper with a wallpaper-scoring tool to make it easier for the warm water and vinegar to penetrate the glue. Only press hard enough to tear the paper to avoid damaging the wall behind it. Step 2: Spray the wall Spray the wall with a solution of one cup vinegar per gallon of water. Wait 30 minutes. Tip Use wallpaper remover if the water and vinegar solution is not strong enough. Step 3: Peel off the wallpaper Peel the wallpaper slowly away from the wall, starting at a corner or seam. Step 4: Spray stubborn areas Spray stubborn areas again with the water and vinegar solution. Step 5: Scrape the paper Scrape away wallpaper that is stuck with the putty knife. Tip Rent an electric steamer to further saturate the glue if the solution doesn't work. Step 6: Wash Wash the wall with a sponge and all-purpose cleaner to remove any residue. Now you're ready to paint, or apply another layer of wallpaper. Did You Know? Did you know?
