Cleaning Nicotine Off a Metal and Glass Lamp Shade?

My mum has given me a silver coloured metal lamp shade, but unfortunately she is a heavy smoker hence it has stains on it. I don't want to immerse it in water as it would go rusty. Any ideas?

Glass is difficult to clean because it absorbs a higher proportion of tar and nicotine. Soak glass ashtray in hot vinegar overnight. As for the metal, you may want to use heavy dish soap or jewelry cleaner.

A solution of white vinegar and water will remove it. It may take a few tries and some elbow grease.

You should try degreasing dish soaps, like Dawn.

Use dawn dish soap with a plastic scrubber. Vinegar could discolor the metal, depending on what type it is.
