Things You'll Need
Liquid fabric softener, such as Downy
Stripping wallpaper is a time-consuming job. Make the job easier with the right tools and an easy stripping solution. Be patient and meticulous; you'll be rewarded with a beautiful bare wall.
Use the scraper to remove as much loose wallpaper as you can, especially if it is coming off in large sheets.
In the spray bottle, mix one part liquid fabric softener to three parts hot water. For example, fill an 8-ounce spray bottle with 6 ounces of water and 2 ounces of fabric softener.
Lightly spray the mixture onto a section of wallpaper. Let it soak for 10 minutes to allow the wallpaper glue to soften.
Remove the wallpaper in that section with the scraper. If it is not coming off easily, score the wallpaper with the scraper, spray it again and continue removing.
Continue spraying and scraping sections of the wallpaper until it is entirely removed.
