We started working on the nursery today. The previous owners put up yellow gingham wallpaper that we decided to tear down. We tore off the top layer of the wallpaper by hand, then used a garden sprayer to apply equal parts of warm water and fabric softener (we used Downey). The wall paper adhesive was then able to be peeled from the wall by hand. We had to use putty knives in the corners. It was a very easy process.
