My boyfriend and I just rented a townhouse and everything is perfect except for the hideous peeling wallpaper in the living room and kitchen (green and purple 80's crap in one room and little baskets of blue flowers in the other--ew). I've removed a small wallpaper border in my mother's house before and we used that wallpaper removal spray gel stuff, but I've also heard that you can use water and vinegar. Can anyone tell me which works better? And are there any other tips I should know of?

Water and vinegar in a spray bottle works just as well. One handy tool though is the thing that scores the paper, and you can find them at the paint store or Lowe's/Home Depot. Score the paper first, then spray and let sit for about 30 minutes. Only do small sections ( 3- 4 feet), at a time.

Good luck! Smiley

yeah, definately use water/vinegar - the other stuff i like, 15 dollarsa a bottle. i have the scoring thing, it works okay. i usually use a paint scraper to get most of it off though.
