Cigarette Smoke Stains on Cabinets

I have semi gloss, white painted, birch kitchen cabinets that have started to yellow from cigarette smoke. I am wondering how to clean it without creating a dull effect.

Mr. Clean sponges will take off the stains (from painted surfaces) .. and I imagine something like Turtle wax would restore the shine.

The sponges are for all surface dirt on woodwork, they are great!

I have used Clorox Clean Up on walls and cabinets to remove nicotine stains.

I have used Scrubbing Bubbles on white cabinets at my mother's house. You can actually see the bubbles lifting the stains off. It's really great!

Hard to rid your items of this nasty yellow staining.

Use Bleach and hot water with a sponge and scrub like there is no tomorrow!

Wash cabinets with OXYCLEAN, it will not only take the yellowing stains off but will also reduce the odor...let me know how you make out...
