Removing old wallpaper glue has damaged my wall. I wondered if I could just put Bin Primer over the old glue. Someone recommended fabric softener. Does that really work?

Everyone you talk to has their own remedy for removing wallpaper glue.
Fabric softener, Vinegar and several others. There are also several different different brands on the market.
All of them work most of the time, depends on the glue.
I have never used fabric softener but I have heard that it works well.
Two pointers:
1) Use a large full bucket warm to hot water and rinse your rag often and change your water often.
2) Use a sanding block to remove any bumps or light residue after dry.
I would not recommend painting a heavy residue of glue. The paint will curdle and you will have a mess.
Hey, I hope this was helpful
Thanks
