Follow this advice for wallpaper removal in three easy steps:

Step 1-Most wallpaper has a waterproof surface, so it's necessary to score it so the wallpaper stripper can penetrate and loosen the glue underneath. The more holes you make, the faster and easier it will be to remove the wallpaper.

Step 2-Next, apply a wallpaper stripper. Spray the ready-to-use solution on the scored paper starting at the top and working your way down, making sure the wallpaper is thoroughly wet. DIF(r) is also available in a concentrated liquid, Ultra Concentrate and Gel for tough wallpaper removal projects.

Step 3-Use a tool like the Paper Scraper(tm) to remove the loose wallpaper without surface damage or hard work.
