Any suggestions for me on this wallpaper removing project in our bedroom?
We have lived here 15 yrs - the wallpaper has probably been on these old plaster walls for 30 yrs.
The first 2 layers of wall paper came off EASY. On the third and last layer of old wallapper, I have tried "everything": Water + fabric softener; DIF + paper tiger; Steamer; and now another wallpaper removal chemical called Fast. Still, this paper is only coming off in minute pieces, with a lot of very hard scraping which is damaging the plaster in the process. At this rate, I will still be taking this wallpaper off 6 months from now, and then having to do a lot of work on the plaster.
My next (and last?) tactic may be to try the "wallpaper wizard's" recipe: 3 gals hot water, 22 ozs of wallpaper remover, 1/4 cup fabric softener, 1 cup white vinegar, 2 tbs baking soda, applied 3X, then covered with .7 mil plastic sheeting overnight.
Any other suggestions? At what point do you cut your losses, and move on leaving whatever wallpaper you cannot get off?
THX much for any suggestions / tips you have!
