'Sanitary' wallpaper

Postby kate » Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:49 am

I've peeled back some of the layers of wallpaper in my bathroom and there seems to be original sanitary wallpaper underneath it. I can't find much info on the internet - does anyone know how easy this is to remove or whether I can paint over it with bathroom paint?

It should respond in the same way as other heavier papers - score it and then wet thoroughly. And then use a sharp scraper, cutting through to the plaster and then slide!
