I would suggest trying Lemon Oil. It worked for my mom to help to remove paint off of a Mantel Clock. It is in stores in the cleaning supplies. Just pure Lemon Oil, and it won't hurt the wood. Just put it on a clean cloth, rub on the wood, then polish with another cloth. You may have to do it a few times, it smells good, and is good for the wood, it helps to preserve it.

I am needing to clean some appliances that are severely stained with nicotine. I have tried just about everything like Mean Green, Oven cleaner, Degreaser, Windex, among other various cleaners. I have even tried sanding them down, nothing thus far is working. Need any suggestions please. (03/04/2005)
Don't laugh, but a regular bar of Ivory soap will remove nicotine off of anything. Dampen a sponge or cloth and rub the bar with it.
I scrubbed my brains out with practically every cleaner available and the Ivory removes it like a breeze with very little effort. Amazing!
I do my furniture with Ivory also. Shines like new after it's polished. (03/26/2005)
Scrubbing Bubbles does a wonderful job. It does the work for you. (04/26/2008)
