One of those steam things work really well. not sure of the name but they have a plate thing - the steam comes out, softens the paper then you scrape it off with a fish slice (or similar)

Just been to the website and had a look , I think it's just a 'gimmick '. So, you score the wall and expect water from damp paper/cloth sheets to penetrate wallpaper especially if it has been emulsioned ?.....I dont think so .......... Everyone knows how difficult it is removing wallpaper from walls and all types of methods have been tried, I should know ,have been decorating for 37 years . The easiest method is by steaming , using a steam stripper . It's still a long laborious job , a hated one but none the less an important one . I've tried the scorer with cold water and a sponge ,tried the warm water with an additive ................it takes a long time and you end up peeling the paper off in layers as it becomes wet .
Really , steam is the only thing that will penetrate layers of emulsion paint on such papers as woodchip/anaglypta .You missed the Amazon deal on here a few months back , they were selling a brand new steamer for only £12.00 . If your going to do the job yourself , buy or hire a steamer and do the job right .

i know what u mean i saw it and i thought it looks like a great deal i have a steamer alreaddy and i know this is goin to be a massive job lol
any tips on a bit of a easier method to remove anaglypta

Not really , your hampered by the size of the steam plate , so you can only do a small area at a time .This was always a job for the apprentise or new starter on the job as it is such a boring job but an important one nontheless.Have any teens in the family ?? ,or know someone on the dole ?? ,who might do this job for you for some extra money .A company would still charge you a fair bit for this sort of work , so it's worth doing your self and saving a few bob .I would just tackle one room at a time , as trying to do the whole house in one go will just sicken you.

How about hiring a few strippers and getting some mates arround with some tins of beer .........................no not that sort of stripper . A quicker way of doing it .
Remember the 'Royal Family ' sketch onTV ?
