Wallpaper Removal home recipe

Removing Wallpaper

TIPS: Wear rubber gloves when mixing and using this solution. The vinegar will dry out your hands.

Mix together 1/3 cup fabric softener with 2/3 cup hot water, or add cup white vinegar to a gallon hot water.
Pour either solution into a garden spray and moisten the wallpaper. Allow to stand 20 minutes or until wallpaper is loosened enough to be peeled off.
Remember that vinyl wallpaper will need to be scored before you apply the wet solution, so the solution has a means to penetrate the paper.
Then remove the wallpaper, starting at the bottom and lifting towards the ceiling. If it resists, take a scraper and use some elbow grease.

Ammonia and Hot Water to Remove Paper:

I mix about a quarter cup of ammonia with about 2 quarts of hot water. Using one of those round tools called a "paper tiger" which has a little scoring wheel underneath, I score the old paper, which pokes tiny holes in the paper.
Next, soak the aforementioned solution onto the old wall paper with a sponge. After 30 - 60 seconds, scrap the paper off. Repeat if necessary.

Fabric Softener Used To Remove Paper:

I just removed 2 layers of wallpaper using the fabric softener. I used a spray bottle and filled it about 3/4 of water and then 1/4 fabric softener. I sprayed the paper and by the time I had sprayed one wall, I was able to go back and started to strip the paper off. I was lucky that it came off fairly easy. On parts of the wall that did not come as easily, I just sprayed it again and got it off. You do need a drop cloth as it tends to be a little messy. But I had the wall done in about an hour.

Home Recipe for Wallpaper Removal:

Removing wallpaper can be a real drag, but there is an easy "home recipe" to help make the job less messy and a lot easier. You should already have the stuff in your kitchen. All you need is a big spray bottle, and some white vinegar. Just fill the bottle or sprayer equally with 1/2 HOT water and 1/2 WHITE vinegar. Spray equally over wall paper and allow it a few minutes to soak in. Then just simply begin removing the paper steadily, from top to bottom, if you can get a corner started before you spray, the job will be that much easier. Just remember HOT water and WHITE vinegar.
