Shower rod damage
« on: January 02, 2010, 03:24:42 PM »
How do I get this type of wallpaper off. It seems
to be on pretty tight and stretches a bit as I pull on it. Steam it off or use those chemicals?
I'm up for suggestions.
I apologize if this turns out to be a double post,
I couldn't tell that the first one posted.

sorry, I didn't do very well getting that picture in there. Must be the new procedures, guess I'll read up on that now.

  I did that too on my former coach. Your wallpaper sounds like vinyl by your stretching description. The chemicals won't penetrate vinyl.  A heat gun worked for me.
  In the end the wood was so clean underneath I applied a light wood oil and left it.

thanks for your response, got the old steam buggy out of the shed and steamed some of
it off, gonna have to do that a bit at a time
as I can't stand the steam.
