Removing Cigarette Smoke Residue from Walls

We just found out from our next door neighbor that the people who rented the mobile home we just moved into this February were smokers. We got sick to our stomachs because this is the 5th time we moved due to horrible smokers in apartments. When I wipe the walls with a damp tissue there is a yellow stain on it. We're thinking maybe its the cheap paneling or it could be from the smokers. We want to clean the walls (big house) and want to use the best stuff. From what I read vinegar and water or Murphy's Oil Soap are both good. Which one should I use for the walls? I will have to do one room at a time.

activated charcoal and vinegar will both neutralize the smell

you can purchase activated charcoal here: https://www.ama  2?tag=thrif06-20

and as far as vinegar, just leave them in an enclosed space with an open dish of white vinegar (make sure that it cannot fall over!) for a day or so. This should help dissipate.

I would also give enzymatic cleaners a try. These cleaners use enzymes to break up the organic matter that causes the smell.

You can buy one here https://www.che  amp;gclsrc=aw.ds

or, if you have brown sugar, citrus peels and a lot of time on your hands, you can make your own: http://www.wiki  e-Enzyme-Cleaner

Baking soda will get rid of nicotine stains and odor.
