Insulating Interior Walls

Is faced insulation bad for interior walls? I realize it is probably best to use non-faced but I have some left over kraft faced R-13. Should I just rip the paper face off, or would it not make a big difference if I left it on?

Insulating Interior Walls

You don't need a vapor barrier but make sure it is to the warm side if you do it.
