Question Removing wallpaper

I am currently removing wallpaper in my bathroom so I can texture and paint. I've pulled up the wallpaper outter coat, I'm having problems pulling up the under-lying wallpaper ( the backing). Do I need to have every bit of it off in order to texture & paint my walls? Thank you....

Yes.

This is especially true with a texture because failure due to the backing material is more complicated to fix that just a regular paint failure. At first the texture may look fine, but when the bubbles appear, you are doomed.

My static answer to all requests to paint, texture, spackle, primer, re-paper over old wallpaper is the same: you can do it, but you will hate yourself for it later. Visit my site for wallpaper stripping tips. You have the facing material off, that makes it 500% easier just with that small step. Best of luck.
