Wallpaper Paste Vs. Pre-Pasted Activator

Can I use regular wallpaper paste in place of pre-pasted wallpaper activator? The paper is going in a bathroom. When I put the last paper up I used pre-pasted activator and the paper lasted 9 years without ever lifting at the edges or seams. But I am having a hard time finding it now, although I can get regular wallpaper paste.

My suggestion is to size the walls first then apply the wallpaper with regular wallpaper paste. Sizing material can be had at Sherwin Williams and I would think Home Depot.

We do wallpapering for a living and ALWAYS use paste! We do water it down some for prepasted paper , roll it on and fold it over for 10 minutes or so, than hang. We never bother with an activator solution. If you are papering over wallpaper, like a border, a special paste must be used called VOV or vinyl over vinyl.
