Shell Busey’s knows that trying to remove that heavy vinyl or foil wallpaper can be very frustrating. Don’t give up – there is an easy solution.
Begin at the top and pull the face of the paper straight down at 180 degrees flat to the wall. Apply a wallpaper removing solution to the back side. Allow the solution to migrate down the backside between the wall and the paper, releasing the paper from the wall.
Hint – You can make your own wallpaper removing solution by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of fabric softener (eg. Fleecy or Downy) into one litre of warm water. Spray onto wall and let soak about 5 minutes before scraping off.
Wash your walls with Shell Busey Home Cleaning Formula and rinse well before painting.
