Removing old wallpaper

The Old House Web
I'd like to preserve my original wallpaper, but it's under layers of newerwallpaper. Is there a way to remove the old wallpaper a layer at a time andpreserve the original wallpaper?

A great old trick my grandmother taught me was to mix liquid laundry soapwith water and mist the paper. This usually takes off a layer at a time if donecorrectly. I used it in my home to save the original wallpaper. My favorite isTide. It has just the right amount of "degreasers and slippery stuff."-- From Jennifer, on TheOld House Web Bulletin Boards.
