Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, affordable and friendly Ive never been let down by Zinsser products, they’re great. Screwfix were the only stockists of DIF plus even in lockdown click and collect was fast and efficient and all the staff seemed happy in their work and friendly which was great to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for stripping woodchip! Used this after scoring woodchip wallpaper and really noticed how much easier the paper came off (compared to just using water). Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant - but be careful!! Amazing stuff, gets wallpaper off so easily and no where near the same mess as a steamer! But WEAR GLOVES!!! This stuff will hurt your hands and give them a burn after a while, you have been warned!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Careful buying this! I read a lot of the reviews about how great this product is; but I think either there is a lot of falsehood about this or the people had very small amounts of glue to dissolve. I used this and it managed to only weaken the glue left by old Lining Paper, but on its own it would not come of even after three applications spread out over 15 mins with a final before commencing and done as hot as you can. And even with using triple the concentration didn't change anything, making me suspect it was really just the time and dampness that was doing most of the work. I had to use the steamer, which then with the help of this was able to dissolve it. This only happened on dryline walls on actual plastered walls, the bond of the glue was more and it was useless. My advice is you could more less just use warm detergent and get a similar result. I think if you are stuck and the steamer isn't doing the job, then don't expect this to be of much use. I am amazed that any decorator would bother with this, there has to be something stronger, this stuff is barely stronger than lemon juice!

Is this suitable to use on wall paper that has been glued on to MDF panels? Will it damage the MDF wall panel?

Asked by: BeeBE
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. The DIF wallpaper stripper can be used to remove the wallpaper on the MDF panels, the only concern with using this is that MDF can react to moisture. Even if you were to use water to remove the wallpaper by soaking, the paneling could swell. While there is no reason why the DIF can't be used to remove the wallpaper, please be aware that any moisture on an MDF board could cause a reaction with this. I hope this helps.

Diff wallpaper stripper

It says apply with a roller but doesn't this method get the solution everywhere?
Asked by: Campanula
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. The recommended application methods are either using a sponge or a roller. As this is a liquid, when it is applied there may be drips. As when using a paint, we recommend to protect any furnishings with dust sheets to prevent spoiling or marking these. I hope this helps.

Will this product help remove lining paper off plywood?

Asked by: Bovine
Hi Bovine. Thanks for your enquiry. Yes, the DIF would be ideal as it attacks and dissolves old paste. To speed up the stripping of the paper further, score the paper with a Paper Tiger (3469H) before applying the DIF with either a sponge or roller. To remove residual paste reapply the DIF and wait 15 minutes before scraping or sponging it off. I hope this helps.

What would you recommend using to score the wallpaper in preparation?

Asked by: Polly9
Hi Polly9. Thanks for your enquiry. Our best recommendation would be the Zinsser Triple Head Paper Tiger (3469H). Ergonomically designed to be held in the palm of your hand, working in a circular motion with light pressure, it cuts through/perforates several layers of paper without causing damage to the wall. This combined with the DIF Wallpaper Stripper will make light work of wallpaper stripping. I hope this has helped.

Dry paste?

Will this remove dry paste on new wallpaper ?
Asked by: Lds1
Hi. Thanks for your enquiry. The DIF is capable of attacking wallpaper paste, however, it is also a wallpaper stripper, therefore we would not recommend it for the removal of residual paste on good wallpaper. I hope this helps.
