Here are questions related to Cleaning Nicotine Stains on Blinds.
I have vertical blinds, made of some plastic mash, to let some light through. Over some years nicotine (smoke) has stained the verticals. I have tried soaking in vinegar/water, no success. Help!
How do you clean nicotine stains on vertical blinds?

I've tried everything I've read on the internet with not much success. The cigarette build-up was pretty bad to the point the plastic/vinyl blinds were dark brown and icky. The only solution I found to work was running hot water in my bath tub, placing the blinds in the hot water and adding pure bleach! Swish them around some, let sit a while then rinse and wipe dry. Super easy (compared to a lot of elbow grease). If I have only a couple of blinds I want to clean, I fill my kitchen sink with hot water, add the blinds then add the bleach. Swish & let sit for a bit, checking to see if the stains are gone. When gone, rinse and dry.
