Wallpaper steamer/stripper

Post by panick » August 25, 2017, 10:24 pm

Anyone ever seen one of these here?
I'm getting a tad bored with the lining/backing paper drying out too quick after sponging down due to the humidity before I can scrape it off! :mad:

I looked every where some time back finished up using a small pressurized spray bottle meant for gardening.

How about the steamers used for ironing clothes? One I bought for the wife's shop has around a 1 hour reserve tank, flex hose with handpiece etc. Cost around 5000 at Robinsons in 2016.

Thanks for the ideas ... Looks like it's back to hot soapy water and a lot of exercise 555!

Apparently ...... If you mix 1/2 cup of fabric conditioner with 1/2 gallon of hot water ...... it's the perfect mix for stripping wallpaper of CEMENT walls?

I'll keep you posted! ;)

Are you gonna wallpaper the walls again or do a paint job?
We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now
