I just put the new ones over the old. Peeling takes time. Sometimes it is easier moisten them and take them off this way.

I tied the method to put new ones before remove old and the result was disaster. I got many walpaper bubbles.

The most popular and effective method used to remove wallpaper is moisten the area and wait for some time. Do the same procedure again and wait. It normally takes about 20 to 30 minutes for the saturated paper to completely soften and you can remove it from the wall easily.

This is so true. I have found it is really easy to remove the wall paper if you spray it with either FeBreeze or Genesis 950. These have been the two best things to looses up and let the paper detach from the wall.

When I went to remove the wallpaper in my bathroom to paint it, I founf that the prior owners over time just kept putting wallpaper up . . . layer after layer. There were at least 3 - 4 layers of wallpaper. I started peeling with a putty knife, but the multiple layers caused me to gouge the wall. It was after 2 days I started using the Febreeze, and then the Genesis 950 when that ran out.

Overall, it took about 3 days to get all the paper off. Had it not been for the moisture of the 2 things I used, I would probably still be peeling!!

Hi guys,
Your suggestions are good and nice to hear about different ways from which we can strip wallpaper. I had tried the routine water and vinegar and even bought some mixture that you add to water and all it did was make my arms sore and the paper came off in tiny little bits. Our solution was to rent a wall paper steamer from our local hardware store. I think it is an easy way to remove wall paper.
