Stubborn wallpaper

Postby Noony » Thu Dec 24, 2020 10:14 am

Hi, I have been stripping wallpaper back to the plaster, most of it has come off easily in strips but around the top of the room all the way around us this brown paper that is really stubborn, I am steaming it but it is very time consuming and hard work. Just wondering if there's a better way? Cheers. BTW I can't post a pic fir some reason!

Hi noony
Score the surface of the paper before steaming, you can buy a wallpaper piercer to make this easier.
Pics - go to welcome and look for topic on “posting pictures”.
