Earlex Deluxe SS77 Wallpaper Stripper

Reduced to £29.99 in their sale, but also gets 20% off if you spend over £50 before end of 1st Jan £3.95 to get it delivered.

I nearly bought one for £35 at Screwfix in their sale...this is the slightly better model, which has a larger tank capacity, more power and a few extras. Also £35 at Toolstation, and at this price makes it similar to the multi branded ones.

Ah...good point (well it's actually £50) I got two, so hadn't realised.

I bought one of this a few months back and I'm quite happy with it. It does the job.

That's a bargain.

We bought one of these a while ago...very good product and can also be used as a sauna tool into the bargain as my Mrs will testify.

"A Sauna Tool"??!!

You're talking Steamy and Strippers.

You're on the wrong website mate (_;)

Excellent kit.

Careful, like mine, everyone you know will want to borrow it but give you **** all to use it.

Had my eye on this for the last few days from homebase.

Dont tell them you have it?

Dangerous description imo, advertising a product as being suitable to remove artex should not be allowed. Not taking away from the deal though so heat added.

Looks exactly the same as the one in Aldi for £17

Decent price but useless product IMHO. Cheaply made parts (the main tank where the water boils is well made). My old fashioned father moaned about my new 'fancy gadget' and took to his own methods (which actually worked FAR better and A LOT faster):

1. Paint tray with warm/hot water with a little bit of washing up liquid (not too soapy)
2. Use a paint roller to roll the water on the walls to soak the wall paper for a moment. It is important to let it soak in to paper (not just the surface where the pattern sits).
3. Use a wide (or whatever you have) scraper to gently scrape the wallpaper off at the edge and the rest can just be slowly pulled off as 1 big strip.

It worked a treat and it was faster, cheaper, easier, involved less preparation.
The Earlex stripper was used on thick, thin and multi-layered wallpaper - each time, Father's way worked better. I followed the instructions to the dot on the Earlex and although it worked, it was nowhere as easy as the old fashioned way.

Hope this helps somebody - this method is worth trying before opening your new 'fancy gadget' :p.

I like a stripper, hot!

Has Father tried his method on woodchip paper painted with gloss paint?

Just get the own brand version at B and Q. Does the same job.

Decent price but useless product IMHO



It's so useless (well the b and q one) I stripped all the wall paper off the walls of a large living room with it. Easy peasy.

OK, just checked model numbers and the one in Aldi is this:

homebase.co.uk/en/…550

Slightly smaller (4L vs 5L) and doesn't come with the scrapper.

Incidentally the Earlux one is 4.99 cheaper in B and Q so this deal is COLD. I don't think it's ever been more than 25 quid there either and the own brand one is a couple of quid cheaper as stated and is higher capacity.

I think you are confused.

the b&q one is a different inferior model.

This is the homebase one which works out at £23.99 if you can purchase some other goods up to the value of £50.

Bought an Earlex years ago and still works fine. Brilliant for getting the wallpaper off when we bought the house (roughly 3 layers deep min each room)

Good product

why people need this? i had 4 layers of wallpaper and to remove it all i needed was thick paint brush water and scraper.

Has Father tried his method on woodchip paper painted with gloss paint?



Father? Is that you?
I'm not sure if that was a genuine question or sarcasm (no offence taken :)) but my Mother prefers gloss over matt and they've always used woodchip wallpaper that they paint over. I've never been a fan but they love it. In fact, that is exactly what I bought the Earlex to remove but Father knew best. All I'd say is give it a go, if it doesn't work for you, then no harm done but worth a go. Good luck pal!

Guess you needed to replace your flooring after doing that.
