Removing wall paper border can be a very cumbersome job, especially when you are removing really old paper. However, you do not have to spend a lot, or take a lot of time doing this. With a spray bottle, vinegar, water and a sponge or towel, wall paper border soaking is simplified. Fill the spray bottle 2/3 with water and 1/3 vinegar. Then, liberally spray over the wall paper section. If this spray drips beyond the border, use the towel to sop it up. Within just 5 to 10 minutes, your wall paper border will have soaked enough for you to remove the paper.
