    easy way to romove wallpaper

    honest trust me on this one its so easy....

    get some liquid detergent for clothes/washing like tide or whisk any make really.... now make a solution, with water, in a bucket but make it quite strong, in fact dump loads of soapy stuff in there.... now with a paint roller roll this on your wallpaper on the walls, soak it with the stuff, wait a bit and then with a scraper watch that paper just fall of the walls... I thank you....

    H

    bit of a tip... dont let the wet paper sit on anything too long ie wood floors, in fact do yourself a favour and cover the floors with black plastic available from most hk hardware stores... its a bugger to get off if it dries!!!! happy scraping

    For all of the " wet the wallpaper " solutions ( sic ) you would be advised the LIGHTLY score the surface of the paper with a sharp knife ( stanley knife or craft blade ) to allow the water to easily get beyond the the somewhat impervious decorative printed surface.

    Put towels on the floor or you will walk the crap through the apartment.
