    vinegar !! works best....

  • I was going to suggest the same, I use Heinz Cleaning Vinegar. Sold in some grocery stores and most home improvement stores or janitorial supply.

    wash them down with white vinegar and allow to dry. Then place open boxes of baking soda.

    I agree! Nicotine tends to be greasy. One cup of vinegar and a few squirts of Dawn Dish liquid soap to one gallon of hot water. Vinegar cuts through the grime while Dawn cuts through the grease.

    I used a vinegar & water solution, when I moved into my house. 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water & a good sponge. It's a great mix for getting the grease & grime off'm later when they're dirty too.

    When I moved into my current home, it had dark paneling and what I thought was cream colored moldings. Wrong. The moldings were white. I then decided that the walls were probably all covered in the smoker's residue. We washed the walls using a sponge mop. The cleaner is an old recipe: 1 gal hot water + 1 cup ammonia + 1/2 Cup vinegar and 1/4 Cup baking soda. Should fizz a bit. We started at the bottom on the walls and washed upward b/c when I tried going top down, the drips/runs turned out as lighter streaks since it was on the surface longer. HTH
