Our mobile home has wallpaper on walls and wood framing around doors and windows. Can I use vinegar and water on the wallpaper or will it peel?

Should I use something stronger on the white wood door/window frames?

I have successfully used a damp wall mop or cleaning cloth with a diluted multi-purpose cleaning solution (Mr. Clean, Lysol all-purpose, etc,) I also have used a magic eraser for the stains that don't just wipe off. A magic eraser would also work well on the trim and/or woodwork. A magic eraser looks like a white sponge usually. Different brands have different names but these things are truly amazing. I have even gotten permanent marker off of wallpaper with them!

I saw someone use Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner on paneling and the nicotine ran off. I don't know about wallpaper.

I have a problem. I have just moved in with my soon-to-be mother-in-law. She is a chain smoker. She has the same wallpaper and linoleum she had 30 years ago when the house was built.

I would like to remove the nicotine as a favor. Any suggestions?
