Forget the store bought stuff! Those harsh fumes can burn your lungs if you're not careful. This method produces excellent results with a fresh smell. Thanks to my mom for the tip!

This should get 25 stars!!!! We used it today after pulling down grapevine border & some wallpaper 1/2 way on the walls. Sprayed it on & within a minute was able to scrape off all glue & could almost peel it off in 1 whole strip! Im so glad I remembered I had this recipe in my file of homemade recipes! Thankyou so much for a GREAT way to remove wallpaper glue!
Saved a lot of headaches & cussing, lol! I use scented softner (Downy) & it smells great out there.
