Combine hot water, liquid dish soap, and a tablespoon of baking soda in your bucket. If you find that the glue doesn't come off easily when the solution is applied to the walls, add vinegar to the mix—about 1 cup per gallon of water.

Similarly, you may ask, is it OK to paint over wallpaper glue?
There is no way to get off all of the wallpaper glue, so you have to prime the walls with an oil based primer, before applying a paint. Once the cracked areas are removed, prime the walls with an oil based primer. If the wallpaper glue has a texture, you will want to smooth those areas out before priming.
