Find a loose edge of wallpaper and give it a tug. Vinyl wallpaper usually peels away easily, but you may need a little help from a wallboard knife.
Painting Exterior Walls
If the wallpaper won’t strip by hand, cover the floor with layers of newspaper or a dropcloth. Add wallpaper remover to some hot water as directed by the manufacturer.
Pierce the surface of the wallpaper with a perforation tool. This allows the remover solution to get in behind the paper and soften up the adhesive.
You can use a sprayer, a paint roller or a sponge to apply the remover solution. Let the solution soak into the wallpaper according to the manufacturer’s directions. Do not rush the removal process. Allow the chemical remover to take effect.
Once you’ve loosened the wallpaper, peel it away with a 6 inch wallboard knife. Be careful – not to damage the plaster or wallboard. Completely remove all of the backing paper.
Rinse the adhesive residue from the wall with remover solution. Then rinse the entire wall with clear water, and let everything dry completely.
