There seem to be a lot of positive reviews about Simple Strip/ Wallwik wallpaper removal system. Has anyone tried it personally and would you recommend it? Any tips for getting the best out of it?

So far I'm tempted to go ahead and buy it because it seems pretty good value and I really don't want to hire professionals - I'm determined to do it myself, just need a little guidance!

Hey DIY fans. So I noticed that my question got a lot of views but no-one was able to answer my questions, so I decided to return with my own review of the Wallwik Simple Strip wallpaper removal system.

I went ahead and got the small project kit – I figured I had nothing to lose! (except maybe some old wallpaper, with any luck ☺

My verdict is a resounding IT WORKS.

The good points are that it permeated right through the wallpaper and most of it peeled off first time in whole strips. The scorer was easy to use but I read that other people prefer the Zinsser Paper Tiger but I didn’t try that one myself. The sprayer dispensed the product nice and even, I felt that it could have been bigger so that it didn’t need refilling too often, but my wife disagreed with me on this!

I’m quite an experienced home improver when it comes to decorating and painting, but have never tackled wallpaper removal myself. Simple Strip was really easy and I’m glad I went ahead and tried it.
