The best way to remove wallpaper border on what type of wallpaper is used, what type of surface it was glued on, and what type of glue in one of the easiest things you can try the hair dryer to the wallpaper border, which heat can weaken the glue enough to peel it off.

Usually, the boundary adding to the gallery, it will come fairly easily. Fog lights and a plastic scraper to the bottom of the wall removed. If the wallpaper border has a vinyl covering that is not any water or commercial wallpaper remover to suck through, use a perforation tool over the entire surface to penetrate.

Instead of using commercially available wallpaper stripper, you can also use a mixture of fabric softener and water. Mix 1 capful of fabric softener to 1 liter of water. Pour into a spray bottle and spray it a wallpaper border: For Adhesives very strong, you can also have a week and rub the border, as well as a fabric softener.

Another "homemade" option vinegar. Mix water and vinegar and pray about it, or use the old paint and roll it to the selected part of the wallpaper border.

Remove with a damp cloth to wipe down walls to get wallpaper border is just as much as possible with the vinegar on your wall.
