I have tried Castro heavy duty degreaser. You can find it in a local car parts store.From what I understand nicotine is an oil- grease base. I have washed my husbands work clothes with it many of times. You do not need much of it and do a double rinse. I hope that helps.

Thank you Cindie I'll try anything my ex husband smoked as well as my boyfriend now.
My bf I'd almost three years.


Does smoke constantly I'll try anything. Do you have any advice for getting the smoke stain off of walls?

To get nicotine stains off of paneling, painted walls, blinds etc...anything you can wash, use Dow Bathroom Cleaner. You know Scrubbing Bubbles. It's the only thing that really works. Spray it on and just watch it drip down the walls! It's pretty disgusting.

I know this is far too late to help the original poster, but hopefully it will help someone browsing looking for answers. Krud Kutter cuts through nicotene stains like nothing you've ever seen.


It works better than any of the dozens of things i've tried. Just make sure to wear rubber gloves as it will dry your skin out.

You don't have to spend tons of money I'm cleaning products. You can go to a Dollar Tree they have a purple bottle not purple liquid purple bottle called awesome bang it cost a dollar sprayed on your walls and you'll just watch it and drip off. I actually found this on accident cuz I brought the wrong thing but when I found out how well it works every time I go I buy like 10 bottles of it. I hope this helps!

First, the stains you have are TAR from tobacco. Nicotine has little to no color. Best thing for walls (painted or hard surfaces) is TSP, trisodium phosphate.


Look at Home Depot, Lowes, or paint stores. Not available in all states.

Orangesolve. It is in the automotive section. It works on walls and Ive taken tar spots out of my light carpet!! It has the added benefit of leaving a fresh citrus smell.
