Best/easiest way to remove wall paper paste?


I've just finished taking the wallpaper off in my bathroom using a steamer. It was fairly easy but their is paste all over the walls. My walls are sheet rock and it looks like there's a layer of paint under the paste. What is the best way to take the paste off? Thank you.

If the paper came off with just a steamer, then you should be able to get the glue off with hot water too. Sponge wet, scrape with putty knife, sponge off. Cover potential residue with Gardz.

If it is glue on there, then hot water will have 0 effect

Whether it's "glue" or "adhesive" doesn't matter. If hot water got the wallpaper off, then hot water will continue to get the adhesive off. Otherwise you are saying that hot water dissolved the adhesive underneath wallpaper, but fails to dissolve the adhesive once the wallpaper is gone, which makes no sense.

Just to be clear, you are the one who was picking on another member for saying he put a cleaning solution "in" a power washer.
All I was saying is that it was not glue

I suggest you to wipe with warm water if that walls are made of tiles or ceramics or else you can use stain remover and can stripper those paste off.
