I have removed the (strip-able) moisture resistant wall paper from the
bathroom. There is the bonding paper/ sizing still on the dry wall. How do I
clean this from the wall to prepare it for painting?
I have a small steamer, I would think this would work, but I don't want to
remove/soften or loosen the "paper" surface of the drywall.
Wet it with a sponge, wait, remove. Scrape as necessary. After, wash walls
thoroughly to remove all paste.

Get a bottle of wallpaper remover the enzymes in it activate- loosen the
glue. The backing may be thick , using a garden sprayer is sometimes a
good idea. Carefully scrape it off with a wide blade. Hopefully your
walls were primed in oil or you will have drywall damage needing some

I encountered the adhesive from hell removing my mother-in-laws
wallpaper. (Could also have been a badly prepared wall.) I tried
patching the bad spots when I finally had removed all the adhesive,
but there were so many that I realized putting paint over them was
going to leave a really ugly texture problem. In the end I skim coated
it with walboard compound and a 10" knife, and lightly sanded.
