We've always used plain old dishwashing liquid in water. All you need is to wet the wallpaper with warm soapy water, let it soak in and then remove using a scraper where necessary. Some stubborn areas need a few tries though. Hope this helps.

I use vinegar and warm water. Just spray or wipe it on with a sponge. Let it soak in good and peel the paper right off. Another easy way is to take a piece of new wall paper and soak it in water; then place it on the old wall paper. Let it soak the old paper good and then peel off the old paper.

I just used warm water. I used a spraybottle. It came right off. But there are some areas where the glue is still there. I have tried vinegar, doesn't get the glue off.

What type of vinegar do you use (ex. apple cider, white, distillled)? What type would work best?

Editor's Note: Buy the white distilled. It is usually the cheapest and will work fine.
