My wife I have just completed removing the glue from all the walls our home.

Take a paint pan and filled it with hot water

Next have a roller handle, paint roller and
a extension handle.

Apply as if you are painting. Let the water sofen the glue.

Take a 6" spackling knife at a 85 deg angle and and remove most of the glue.

Wash the wall with a old wash cloth or towel.

All the glue should be gone. It worked for us.

You may want to take masking tape and plastic. Tape the plastic to the top of your molding. This will insure the excess water will go on your plastic and not on your floor.

Good Luck!
