Tools you will need
Popping wallpaper bubbles
To get small bubbles out of wallpaper, moisten the area with a damp cloth and use the utility knife to slit the bubble at its center. Then, placing the glue-injecting syringe behind the slit, insert a small amount of adhesive. Press against the wallpaper with the sponge and use a steam roller to flatten the repair. Use the sponge to wipe away excess glue.
If your wallpaper bubbles are larger than an inch, use the utility knife to cut an "X" into the bubble, and take a little wallpaper paste and use the small brush to cover the underside of each section made from the cut. Place the paper back on the wall in its original place, use the sponge to get rid of any excess glue, and let it dry. You'll soon enjoy looking at your wallpaper again!
