Good old fashioned distilled vinegar and water solution and some elbow grease.:-)

I would try "20 Mule Borax" - I know it works on cigarette smoke. Dilute in water according to instructions and also pour some dry into a small container. Once you've wet your cloth/sponge and squeezed it almost dry dip it into the "dry" borax and start washing. Hope this helps.
