So, you can check whether or not your wallpaper can be stripped by finding a loose edge wallpaper to give it a tug. Usually, vinyl wallpaper can be easily removed with the help of a wallboard knife. If the wallpaper can’t be stripped in a sheet, but become torn pieces instead, you need to use a solution to remove it completely and properly. The solution can be either homemade or commercial. Homemade solution can be made by mixing hot water and vinegar, but commercial solution can be made by mixing hot water and wallpaper cleaner.
