After taking the wallpaper down & removing the glue, how many times do i have to wash the walls before priming? Do I have to use TSP or can I just use spic and span (diluted form) to wash the walls.

Thank you.

How dirty are the walls?

Spic and Span will work - just remember to rinse very well with lots of clean water. Then rinse it again!!

The walls are not dirty at all. I'm just removing any glue still on the walls.

Thanks again for all your help!

If its just glue, then plain water will work. No need for anything else. Regular wallpaper paste is water soluable.

Rinse it a couple of times using a big sponge.
