cleaning wall

I have removed old wallpaper. Residue from old paste remains on wall. How do I clean wall before painting?

Room by Room program has a show on this.
Or, go get a book from your local library.

Wet it down well with a wet sponge, and scrape it off with a putty knife. Let dry, and lightly sand.
Good LucK!

I would add one more thing to Oldguys advice. When you wet the paste, it softens and then when you try to remove it with a sponge or rag, it smears all over. I use a green scotchbrite pad, rinsed frequently. Works great.
