Cheap and easy wallpaper removal

by / Thursday, 09 July 2015 / Published in Uncategorized

I was given the opportunity to repaint my kitchen for a profit, so I finally bit the bullet and started taking down the wallpaper. Ugh, right? It is usually a tedious and time consuming job.

Lucky me, I have an uncle who has been a professional commercial painter for about 40 years.  This is the best and easiest way to remove wallpaper and it uses things you probably already have on hand.

Materials:

Empty spray bottle
Water
Dish soap (any brand will do)
Paint scraper

Instructions :

Fill spray bottle with water and squirt in a healthy amount of dish soap.

Spray wallpaper, making sure to cover it liberally. Let soak for a minute or two.

Take paint scraper to the edge. If wallpaper doesn’t lift easily, spray again.

Repeat these steps until all wallpaper gas been removed.

You can’t even tell that the wall ever had paper on it and it didn’t damage the wall in any way.
