Hanging wallpaper is easy and includes only a few simple steps. In this guide we will explain in detail how you properly dampen the sponge when hanging your wallcovering. Follow these simple steps to attain the best possible results.

  1. Start with a cellulose sponge and a bucket of water.
  2. Understand that too little or too much water can actually damage the wallpaper.
  3. Dip the sponge in the water and gently wring out any excess water.
  4. To make sure you have just the right amount of water in your sponge, let the sponge drip slightly into the bucket.
