Hi, just dropping by this group hoping for some advice. I've just
removed wallpaper and am preparing to paint. How do I remove the sizing
from the wall? So far, I've been using a warm water/vinegar solution
and wiping it off, but it's a slow process, like peeling a bad sunburn!
There must be a better way.

You are probably peeling primer, not sizing.
Sizing is nothing more than thinned down adhesive.
Wash all the glue off- when it stops feeling slimey you are done.
Let the walls dry thoroughly.
Then sand any irregularities, spackle or use joint compound to smooth
them out. Sand again & paint.
