Does shelf liner attract bugs?

How do I remove Easy Liner removable adhesive?
Wet the adhesive side of the crease in the liner with warm water from a spray bottle. Let the water seep under the liner, and then continue to pull the liner back over itself until it sticks again. Repeat as necessary.
Can wallpaper be used as shelf liner?
There are loads of self-adhesive shelf liners on the market, but they can be expensive. If you’re looking for something creative to substitute, consider using old scraps of wallpaper to cover the shelves. The application process doesn’t differ greatly from placing wallpaper on your wall.
