I can’t remember where I saw it but I saw a post maybe on here...

After removing wallpaper instead of washing the walls with sponge and sugar soap and water as we do, they just attack it with the deros/ceros and skip washing the old paste residue off, I feel like I’m asking a silly question but does anyone else skip the wall washing with use of a deros?

Well if you are sanding anyway then it would be pointless to wash it all first.

Sounds risky to me ... unless you use whatever zinsser stuff goes over paste. You will have to wait for the paste to dry first, and then you will not be sure you have removed it all. You need Fitzy or Dynamod but they got sick of us :-)

I agree with OchAye.

If a customer wants their walls painted after paper has been stripped off, I explain why lining paper is a cost effective solution. Or, recently, after successfully using it, I have been recommending Zinsser Wallpaper Cover Up (as long as the existing paper is still stuck fast).

I’m just sick of having wet elbows but I already knew the answer.
