I’ve never cleaned wallpaper, but when I was a kid I helped my parents steam wallpaper off the walls of our house in Kinsley. It was fucking terrible. You have to get these big steam machines and dissolve the glue holding the paper on the wall. Usually people just papered over old paper instead of taking off the old paper, so there were, like, 4 layers of wallpaper going back to the dawn of time. It smelled like dusty wet glue and paper. We had to stand around like chumps and scrape this shit off the wall for days and days. Only to have to paint the fucking walls afterwards. It’s no wonder people opted to just cover up old wallpaper. It would’ve taken forever to clean. Even if you weren’t using a handful of dough.
I actually looked up wallpaper dough just to see how you actually used it & it turns out you can still buy cleaning dough specifically for wallpaper. As near as I can tell it’s just one company making it now. A small container of pinkish dough that you rub on dirty walls I guess. How annoying would that be?
Probably more annoying than some random artist asking for you to support his work if you find it valuable. An artist like me doing the thing I just typed. Links are above and on the other places. If you love weird comics like this it’s well worth it.
