    Here’s a useful tip for the easy removal of wallpaper that may come as news even to the professionals: just use fabric softener mixed with water. I don’t remember the exact ratio for mixing (some people recommend half-and-half, others say you need very little softener), but it certainly works like a charm. Apply the solution with a sponge, allow it to soak for a few minutes, and scrape it off.
