This time I had a full kitchen/breakfast nook to do. Thought I'd try something that could not drip or scald, but the Dif Gel is a really poor performer. It leaves way too much scraping in my estimation. Did some more research and here's what we tried and it worked like a charm on high quality vinyl embedded paper that was very well pasted. (Should be the toughest to remove.If you are working with plain wallpaer, it should come down in one layer.)
From a large retail hardware chain we bought Roman's "Piranha" wallpaper stripper. We scored the walls using a standard circular perforator, sprayed it, waited 10 min., and that allowed the paper to de-laminate. The vinyl layer just pulled away from the under layer in large sheets. The under layer, which is pasted to the wall, is usually where the real work is, but we found this system that made it almost effortless. We bought several yards of plain non-woven interfacing from the fabric shop, then cut several pieces appropriate for the wall spaces we were stripping (like between upper and lower cabinets, below chair rail, etc.) These we put in a bucket of warm water to moisten. Now we resprayed the under layer of paper with stripper, then laid the strips of interfacing over the top. The interfacing holds a layer of moisture against the wall while the stripper does its work. That's the key. If you let it begin to dry, the glue begins to reset.Read more ›
Here is some background information.
We tried several different products. In addition to DIF, we tried a product sold at HomeDepot and here on Amazon called Chomp. I also experimented with vinegar and water, plain water, and Formula 409. We had two different types of wallpaper we removed. One was vinyl wallpaper. The other was an expensive woven wallpaper. I did not score the paper, although some of the paper was already had been "pre-scored" by the previous owner's helpful cats. The wall under the wallpaper was skim coated and primed (skim coating, as I learned, is the process of applying plaster or drywall compound over textured finish to smooth it out).
On the vinyl wallpaper, everything worked. it pretty much peeled off with just plain water. So I can't say if DIF was really that helpful. The woven wallpaper was a different story. The decoration portion peeled off without much effort, a little wetting with just about anything did the trick. However, the thick brown paper backing and glue coating was left behind and both were a bear to get off.
Evaluation of DIF
If I were to compare DIF to only Chomp or to vinegar and water, I might give it four stars. I found that if I applied it quite liberally, waited 20 minutes and then applied a second coat, I could slowly peel off the brown paper and with a bit of work, the glue backing. Timing was tricky. Do not wait enough, it doesn't work because it hasn't had enough time to do its thing. Wait too long and it dries out. Remember, that I have already peeled off the decorative coating, so I am only talking about brown paper and glue.Read more ›

does work but I found Dawn dish detergent works just as well.Published 1 month ago by John T. Kramer
I like the gel over the watery solutions, the blue helps you see where you've sprayed it. Removing wallpaper is a messy job, Dif gel helped control the mess factor a bit more. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Sue
it did soften the wall paper paste to aid removal, but the product residue had to be rinsed and rinsed and rinsed to make the wall clean enough to paint. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Wednesday
Great product. I was 7 months pregnant when I used it and needed something with no smell. Just follow directions, spray generous amount on scored wallpaper and WAIT 20 mins. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Melissa
