drywall/wallpaper


I posted this in general discussion. Not sure if that was correct but here it is
again.

I am taking wallpaper off my walls and some of the sheetrock paper is coming down also. When I put sheetrock mud over the tear, it bubbles up. I than have to cut the bubble and redo it. How can I stop this? Also, what can I use to spray on the wallpaper to make it easy to come off?

Apply a coat of Zinsser's GARDZ to the bad area, and it will prepare it for mud.

I couldn't find gardz at the local lowes so I put some 1,2,3 primer on the bad spots. Taking off the wallpaper, I used hot water and fabric softner. Let is sit for about 15 min. wet it again and it comes off eazy
