I probably pulled off a section of the wallboard in a 3'x3' section before I realized the trouble I had created. Actually, what I'm looking at looks like a rough cardboard, it didn't actually go all the way to the white chalky part of the board. But my question is what to apply to the wall to get it back smooth? I assume I have to do something to the drywall before applying the primer? I would appreciate any tips you have to offer.

FYI...I just bought the house a year ago and it was the original wallpaper hung back in 1983, yes it was vinyl wallpaper. I had no problem in the dining area, it came off remarkably easy. So I was shocked when I ran into this problem in the bathroom. But like I said, only the section that I used the DIF did I have this problem. I switched to another concentrated product by 'Dissolve' and it came off almost as easy as in my previous room. Beats me??!!
