Have recently moved into a home that has wallpaper over wood paneling. We have decided to strip the paper and paint the paneling. When the paper was removed, we discovered that the previous owners used masking tape over the grooves in the paneling and then primed the walls. After the masking tape was removed a sticky residue remained. Not only that, but the walls still have some wallpaper glue on them as well. Need to know how to remove the sticky residue from the tape and the remaining wallpaper glue. Any suggestions???
You can use either DIF or Wallpaper Chomp to remove the glue and it may remove the adhesive of the tape as well. These items can be found at your local paint store.
