Half water and have white distilled vinegar applied freely and repeatedly until the sponge or towel shows no nicotine residue - just wait till you see how well this cuts and removes the truly icky yellow mess! The vinegar 'aroma' will dissipate in about a half hour after the last wipe-down leaving the room/house odor free.

Do I need to rinse the vinegar off with water before painting?

The previous owner at my house used to smoke in the garage. It's exposed lumber rather than smooth wood or drywall. So spraying the vinegar on is no problem....but wiping it off is. It's rough so a sponge or rag would snag. I assume it has to come off to get the odor out? Or would vinegar neutralize the odor even if the tar sticks to the wood.

I found this recipe many moons ago and always keep it close by. It is the fastest way I know of to remove Nicotine , and is a general cleaner for painted walls and woodwork.

1 Cup Ammonia

1/2 Cup Vinegar

1/4 Cup Baking Soda

1 Gallon Hot Water

I mix the ammonia, vinegar, water first then slowly add the baking soda. Do this over the sink as it can fizz up.

Using a large sponge or rag, first wipe with the solution then wipe again with clear water. I only wipe it again if it is a real heavy build up your trying to remove.

Warming the vinegar with a heating pad works great. Also, use hot water on the rag helps to break it lose.
