Re: removal of stubborn wall paper
A steamer will probably be the least messy and work the best. If you don't want to rent a steamer, then mix 1 cup of fabric softener in 1 gallon of warm water and sponge or spray it onto the wall, allowing it to soak into the paper and release the glue. The fabric softener breaks the waters surface tension, allowing it to more easily penetrate. To protect the floor, tarps or heavy plastic down and up the wall just a bit, then cover that with painters plastic and tape the plastic to the wall to seal the floor away from any moisture, water, and debris that is going to run down the wall and/or fall to the floor.
