Using the Steamer Stripper

Hold the pad completely flush on the wall surface. After 15–30 seconds, move it along and scrape paper off the wall in the steamed area. The thicker the layer(s) of paper, the longer you will need to hold the pad in place. But do not hold it still for too long or the wall surface itself may crumble. Steam the entire surface of the wall.
