After removing tile wall


After removing tile from bathroom walls, how do I either eliminate the glue from behind, or smooth it as much as possible? Or what are my options to cover it up?

After removing tile wall


the easiest way is to remove and replace the drywall. if you plan to retile it make it go much smoother and you will end up with a better job in the end. if its around a tub or shower you need to install some type of concrete backer board and waterproof it before you tile.
