Friends, my husband and I recently purchased a wonderful 111 year old Victorian in rural Virginia. The upstairs parlor has some lovely but very old wallpaper gracing the room. I want to keep the wallpaper as it lends so much to the room.
The paper is very dirty in places. There is some water damage in a couple of places. However, if cleaned properly the paper should be gorgeous. A soft green with roses and some silver applied.
How do I clean the paper? There doesn't appear to be any kind of protective shield or any semblance of vinyl protection. Just old wallpaper applied to plaster.
Thank you so much!
