Removing Contact Paper From Walls


The previous owner used contact paper as wallpaper. How do you remove it?

A hairdryer works beautifully, removing contact paper. Just direct the heat towards a corner of the paper and start pulling on the paper, while the hairdryer is softening the adhesive on the contact paper...Move the hairdryer back and forth on the paper...

My neighbor heated it with the hair dryer and it comes off fine, so she could paint over the walls.

Use a hair dryer to heat the glue and peel it off slowly as you heat. Do a small area at a time.
