I am wanting to paint the bathroom in the near future but right now it has wall paper and some of the edges are coming loose. Question is,hows the best way to remove old wall paper? I have never messed with it before. I`m wanting to end up hopefully with a nice smooth surface to paint.
Your suggestions are appreciated,Terry

The last one went down in Germany 'bout 1945 or so from what I heard on Hogan's Heroes.

A friend of mine is going through his 1870 farm house room by room. Most of the rooms have been wall papered many times over. He's tried it all for stripping the paper and by far the best method he's found yet is a product from DIF. It comes in a liquid or a gel. He uses the liquid. Applys it with a sprayer, lets it set for 10-15 minutes and goes at it with a putty knife. works pretty good.

Dif does work great, but I have found that you can mix liquid Downey and water. Works just as well and a little cheaper.

Matter of fact there is. If it is a vinyl paper strip it off, now take a wet sponge and wet down a spot on the paper backing that has been left on the wall. Give it a few minutes to soak in. If it bubbles you are going to have to wet sponge the whole room and remove the paper backing. If not you need to float the seams with mud and lightly sand smooth. This will give you a good surface to hang paper back over it. Good luck
