Wallpaper Removal Tools!



At our local Lowes, we found this product for wallpaper removal from the Zinsser people. Actually, it is a multi-step process after you remove window coverings, switch plate covers and picture hangers, etc.:
1. Use the special wallpaper scoring tool. This tool is rubbed over the wallpaper to make tiny perforations in it that will allow the liquid goop to seep under the wallpaper and loosen it.
2. Roll on, sponge on, or spray on the removal goop.
3. Wait a few minutes.
4. Start scraping!

This process worked well for me on bedroom #3, so now I will see how it does in this room. Wish me luck!

  1. We tried the same steps after we bought our house…. it didn’t work at all, especially not on the wallpaper borders. We had to skimcoat and then sand the walls to fix them after getting the paper off because it ripped the drywall off too. The fun of home renovations.
