In my room, the previous occupant (my sister) put up a border of wallpaper along the ceiling.
Trying to remove it was a massive pain in the butt. That whole "fabric softener and warm water" trick? Didn't work. The gel remover you buy at the big box stores? Didn't work. Ended up renting a wallpaper steamer and that was a pain. It took two days to remove a 12" border from my small room. When you see videos, they like to show the paper coming off in nice strips, cleanly removing the glue... It's all a LIE.

If you have a lot of wallpaper to take down, hire a professional.
