Purchased a home, discovering that if the gov't wants to ban anything, it ought to be wallpaper instead of guns. Actually, the paper and most of the glue came off really easy. However, they either used a crapload of glue or a completely different glue on the seams that were close to corners. The glue is on thick and neither the store-bought solvent ("Dip", I think) made for that purpose, nor TSP worked very well. The glue isn't dry, so sanding really isn't an option.

Anyone else have any experiences or recommendations? As a followup, any special primer that I should use as a first coat? While the rest of the glue more or less all off, the walls do feel slightly tacky when moistened, so there is still a small residue.

use fabric softener to loosen wall paper glue, soak the paper, peel and wripe off.
