I put a design on the wall of the house we are renting and I HAVE to get it off and it won't! It's the kind that you put on with a wet sponge, it went on nicely, but it's started to curl at spots but it won't come off. I've tried a wet sponge and I've also tried scraping... Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Try spritzing with water a little section at a time and when it's saturated try to slowly pull it up


Can you contact the manufacturer? I assume it was something bought and then placed right?

if it is vinyl based, usually a hair dryer melts it enough.. Ive gotten some really tough wallpaper off before with hot water and fabric softener let soak into it.. not sure if what you have up is similar to wall paper or not..

When I removed wallpaper (years ago) I used fabric softener on a paper towel (or sponget I can't remember). It worked great!
