Popcorn ceiling or cottage cheese ceiling got really famous in 1950s. They were a big trend until the 80s rolled around. But due to the early formulations for the paint contained white asbestos, this style apparently died out; thanks to the Clean Air Act of 1978. There were asbestos-free popcorn ceilings after the 1980s. Homeowners went for a more modern look – deciding on flat ceilings without much texture.

But some older homes and apartments still have a popcorn ceiling. If you want to get rid of it, this video is going to show you a simple way to do so. All you need to do is spray the ceiling with water (optional), and then get a spackle knife and a shop vacuum. If you follow the instructions carefully, you will be done with an entire room in less than 10 minutes!
