Step 1: Gather the Necessary Tools
Before you begin, you'll need to gather some tools to make the process easier. Here's what you'll need:
- A few garbage bags and maybe a helpful friend
Step 2: Start at a Corner
Begin by finding a corner of the wallpaper. You can use your fingers to loosen the edge of the paper.
Step 3: Pull Slowly at a 45-Degree Angle
Once you have a corner of the wallpaper loosened, start to pull it slowly at a 45-degree angle. Be patient and take your time, as pulling too quickly can cause the wallpaper to tear or the paint to come off the wall.
Step 4: Repeat Until All Wallpaper is Removed
Continue to pull the wallpaper slowly at a 45-degree angle. Repeat this process until all of the wallpaper has been removed.
Step 5: Clean up the Area
Once all of the wallpaper has been removed, it's time to clean up the area. If any excess stickiness is left behind, fill a bucket with warm water and use a sponge to wash the wall. Finally, dispose of the wallpaper in a garbage bag.
