Cleaning Nicotine Off Walls

Our apartment has been smoked in for 15 years. All walls were originally painted white, but now are a lovely shade of yellow/brown. We decided to stop smoking (yay us!), so now I have begun the arduous task of cleaning walls. I've tried many of the tips here. Great tips all, however, none quite up to the challenge.

Last week, I spilled some Dr. Bronner's almond castile soap on my grill. The grease disappeared completely when I wiped it off! Today, I tackled the smallest room. I put the castile soap directly on a Dobie, scrubbed the wall, wiped it with a hot damp microfiber and voila! Came. Right. Off!

I didn't even wear gloves, and the smell is fantastic! Next comes the fresh paint! Hope this helps someone. I love this site :)

I've had the same task in my ex-chain smoking aunt's bathroom - I found that Wilko's antiseptic floor wipes, which come in Lemon and Lavender fragrances, did the job nicely. And they were half price and 50p a pack!

A SPONGE MOP IS IDEAL FOR WASHING WALLS. BE SURE THERE IS NO DRIPPING WATER, OF COURSE. THIS WORKED WELL ON OFFICE PANELING, USING SPIC AND SPAN AND NO RINSE.
