Fabric softener and water. Takes it right off.

*Am I gay for knowing that?*

My wife puts fabric softener and warm water in a bucket and wipes it on the wall with a rag. Let it sit for a few minutes and the paper and glue will peel right off. Sometimes you will have to wipe the glue one more time to get it all off.

She said it's a 50/50 mix and she sometimes puts it in a squirt bottle. Start at the top and work your way down.

Well it has been 3 weeks and we are finally moving in this weekend.

In the last 3 weeks i have ripped out all carpet (1800 square ft) redid all the hardwood oak floors (1300 sq ft sanded & poly) the other 500 we did floating laminate, took off all the wall paper and painted the rooms.

I have been at the house everyday till at least midnight every night.

I am tired and sore, i cannot wait to move all the shit in now

kitchen - was the easiest, it pulled right off with just your fingers
formal dining room - worst - had to score it + diff + steamer
bed room 1 and 2 - pretty easy with the steamer
bed room 3 - 1/2 went easy the other half they used a different glue or something cause it was a bitch.

I used a wall sander on all the walls to get them smooth again, worked great.

Pulling all the carpet was disgusting, animal piss on every square foot of the full 1800 was nasty

I sanded the floors of 6 rooms and the landing with the drum sander, that was the most work.

Currently i am just finishing up the trim work cutting in the painting.

We will have to just get the carpet for the one family room and then it will be mostly done.
