Removing wallpaper is always tedious work, but knowing how to do it properly can save time and elbow grease. Use a pump-up sprayer to apply a mixture of wallpaper remover and hot water to the wall, and before spraying, score the wallpaper with a utility knife.

No matter how easy it is to remove, your wall is likely to have some dings that will need to be patched up, not to mention the mess of torn wallpaper that will have to be swept off the floor.
