    Thank you so much! Sounds daunting, but this is the first detailed explanation I've seen.

    I found there are parts where it comes in two layers. The first is the textural materials, then a paper/glue layer. The second takes the vinegar mix much better. You can damage the sheetrock paper if you are overly aggressive with the water mix if the wall was not prepared before the paper was installed. You need to experiment but I found it takes time to soak through, but worth the wait so work ahead with the water mix and go back to see if it is loosening every 10 minutes. When it begins to release I spray it again and come back in another 10 then larger parts will come.
    Also want to second the idea of cleaning up the wall once it is removed, DO NOT leave anything you an remove it is a pain when it is time to paint.

A rich texture palette, autumnal hues, a red leather armchair and a blazing fire will tempt the homeowner into this...
