Spread the news! The stainless steel blade you depend on to smoothly spread joint compound and putty is also perfect for making short work of unwanted wallpaper. Its extra flexibility lets you easily slip under all kinds of wall covering, while its three-inch width is ideal for tight spots—like between the door casing and a corner—that would stymie a larger scraper. Just be sure to loosen the paper with removal solution first so you don’t nick the drywall beneath. Available at HydeStore.com; $7.60.
