Wallwik? any good?

Has anyone had any experience, pro or con, with this product?

The system looks fairly straightforward. They have these sheets (reusable)you soak with formula then apply to the walls. Surface tension must keep them in place. I'm sure the sheets hold the moisture in so it works into the paste faster and more thoroughly.

I wonder how you keep them on a ceiling? Got an old house and the ceilings are papered, too. Looks like many layers.

Thanks.

It works like a charm. I had a kitchen with 30 years of wallpaper, 3 layers, applied over unprimed wallboard. It took off all three layers without damaging the wallboard. The "paper" you apply is a strange fibrous covering, that retains the moisure very well. It adheres well to walls, but I don't know about ceilings. You do have to leave it on for a while, but it works lvery well. I highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for writing this post. I have recently bought a new apartment, which was covered in old wallpaper. The contractor hadnít primed the walls prior to application. We had tried lots of different products to remove the wallpaper, but it was coming off in small pieces, no bigger than a thumb nail. We had all but lost hope of ever being able to remove it. I thought I would have a search on the Internet to see if we had missed something. I thought that surely someone had to have invented an easier method by now.
After reading this I thought I would give Wallwik a try. I didnít have much hope, but figured that I had nothing to lose. I am delighted to say that Wallwik worked where all the other products had failed. Not only did it work well, but the paper came off in big pieces. Within half a day we had striped two large rooms. I will be recommending Wallwik to everyone from now on.
