Hi All,
Need some advice on an interior problem. Decorative wallpaper border that is in most all the rooms in our coach is coming off the wall by rolling up at the top and the bottom. This border was replaced under warranty shortly after we took delivery. Now it is rolling up again. We are trying to remove it but it is a "booger" to remove and when you get a piece removed there is an awful glob of adhesive left on the wall. We have used citrus based cleaners, Goo Gone, and a few other products that claim to be adhesive removers. Thinking about using wifes small steam generator to soften the whole mess, but I'm afraid it will de laminate wall covering from wall.
Does anyone know of a sure fire product that will remove this glue without removing the wall covering itself?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank in advance.
Megawatt

Might not trying to find a stronger adhesive to try and fix the border rolling be a better solution

I've had good luck with plain old vegetable oil on small areas. I've never tried it on something that size, but a small test spot would be worth a try.

My 05 Admiral did the same thing, but the problem went away when I traded it in on the 07.

I don't think I would use a steamer to loosen it up. Once the wall is saturated with steam it will warp and bubble. If goo gone doesn't work, try some acetone (available at any hardware or paint store) but be sure you are well ventilated! Strong stuff!

Try some petroleum based products. I've even had some success with the good old American standby.....WD-40! Try a little on a small spot first.

We are having the same problem. The only cure is to put a thin strip of molding on the top and bottom. It really does help.

Spray Pledge furniture polish does a good job on many types of adhesive.

Thank everyone - will get out the elbow grease and the WD40, and the Pledge, and the veggie oil and have another go at it!

Didn't have that much problem getting the paper off, but the sticky stuff (glue) was a real chore. Only thing I found that would take it off was accetone. If you use that, make sure you open all the windows, doors, roof vents, and anything else to avoid the vapors. It also will take some of the coloring off the wall if you rub to hard.
