Why do you need a Stripper ? Water and washing up liquid,Stripper will only damage walls if you leave it on the one spot for too long if you have or can get a garden Sprayer (For spraying flower etc ,) you can fill it up with water and washing up liquid spray the walls a couple of times but make sure to cover the floor and not create puddles on same , this is way easier than a brush but if you cant get one of these then use a roller Wink BTW is the paper Vinyl or Paper ?

How much that set you back Sham?
Thinking of upgrading the shower curtain

McG...take off the top layer of paper first
Should come off by hand
Ye need to soak the backing paper
Use a roller or a big sponge
Soak the whole room 2 or 3 times
Then use a filling knife(not a scraper) to remove paper
**** of a job
