Ok we just moved into this new house a few months ago...and I am finally getting the itch to start painting/wallpapering, etc. I have some really cute Blues Clues wallpaper border that I want to use in the kids' bathroom. The problem is this - the self-adhesive glue that they put on the back is crap. It sticks to the wall fine until someone takes a shower and the hot water causes it to come loose and fall off - constantly. What do you recommend to keep it up there?

I know that they do make a vinyl to vinyl wallpaper paste but I'm not sure if it would work on a pre-pasted border.  It might!  My advice is to go to a paint store or wallcovering store (not Home Depot!.. Sherwin Williams or equivalent) and ask someone there.

thanks for your reply Wink i actually found something that worked really well....spray adhesive!!! actually it's formulated for car headliners. it worked better than i could have imagined. it stands up to the humidity from the shower quite well!!!
