How do I clean the goo behind the wallpaper

posted by: amav31 on 10.11.2006 at 04:32 pm in Home Decorating Forum


I just removed vinyl wallpaper in my kitchen. It came off pretty easily. And now I am in the process of removing the backing paper by spraying warm water. I started on one side of the wall and the paper is coming off easily too. But i notice there is lot of sticky yucky goo on the wall. Is there a solution that I could use to clean it . I would like to later prime and paint the walls.

Please advice. Thanks in advance.

RE: Electrolux induction on their website (Follow-Up #4)

Here's a breakdown on the 36" Induction cooktops discussed on the various threads that should be available stateside between now and next fall, including the Electrolux. It represents what I have been able to gather from various websites, manuals, and comments on this Forum.

Regarding the 10 minute limit on Boost Mode for the Electrolux/Kenmore Elite induction hobs, this means that once you turn on Boost (125% of maximum power on these models) for a given zone on the cooktop, it will run full tilt for only ten minutes and then drop back down to normal Maximum power. At that point you must select Boost once again in order to got back to 1254% of Maximum. On the various Fagor-Brandt manufactured models (Diva de Provence, Fagor, De Dietrich) once you select Boost the zone goes to the maximum available power for that set of paired zones and just stays there until the automatic shutoff safety feature kicks in, which on these models is 1 hour, far longer than anyone is likely to cook at these levels. The 10 minute limit can be an annoyance if, for example, youre heating up a heavy cast iron wok until its smoking hot before stir frying. On our De Dietrich DTI308X with 3200 watts of power, this still takes 5 or 6 minutes, which would leave me with barely 5 minutes to get my stir frying done before the zone dropped back to a lower temperature. Its probably not such a big deal because most folks rarely actually cook at such high temperatures, but its something worth pointing out.


only 36" models mentioned, what of Kenmore?
