Downy is a miracle worker

Before we moved into our new house, we painted the main part. All except the 2 guest rooms and the guest bathroom. The one bedroom (the biggest one) and the bathroom had ceiling to floor wallpaper - it was ugly. So, we tried a little home remedy. Mixing Downy fabric softner in water - and it does a pretty good job. So, if you ever have to tear off wallpaper, you may want to give it a try. It's fairly cheap and it smells good too. We tore the paper off and washed the glue Thursday night and Jonathon spent his day off on Friday painting the bathroom to surprise me when I got home from work. Here is a before and after. What an improvement. We're spending today tackling the "easy" room - it just has a border to tear off.
