No More Wallpaper Woes

If you've finally had enough of the dated, floral wallpaper in your hallway, then it’s time to take action!

Removing wallpaper isn’t always easy but it’s well worth the effort. Here are a few environmentally friendly solutions that are just as effective as steamers and toxic removal paste:

  1. Fabric Softener - Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of fabric softener and hot water and apply to the wallpaper.

  2. Vinegar - Mix equal parts of white vinegar and hot water. Use a paint roller or large brush to apply the solution onto your wallpaper.

  3. Dishwashing Liquid - Mix 1 part dishwashing liquid and 3 parts warm water. Make sure to use a dishwashing liquid that uses a degreaser.

Once the wallpaper’s been removed, wash the walls with warm water and let them dry thoroughly before prepping them to be painted. If you do it right, wallpaper can easily be removed so if your dream home’s covered in it, don’t let it deter you from putting in an offer!
