I'm a smoker and occasionally I have to spend a day or two getting the build-up nicotine stains off of my stuff. I did a search a while back and came up with a killer solution that literally melts nicontine build-up with very little ellbow grease and no super harsh chemicals. The solution:

1 gallon hot water
1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax
1/2 teaspoon liquid dish detergent (Dawn cuts grease and would work well for the stains)
1 tablespoon ammonia

I like to use this in a spray bottle after the borax has all disolved. Have a bucket of clean water handy to rinse your rag out in because the stuff you melt off is uber-nasty and you don't want to contaminate your cleaning solution by rinsing your rag out in it.

I've also used that really harsh shower cleaner which works well, but this stuff works even better without the nasty fumes and burning skin.
 
You're a smoker? Why don't you just go suck on the exhaust pipe of a poorly-tuned automobile.
 
i smoke, I wonder if I should use it on my teeth.... :D

You could try. I doubt it would do any more harm than what that smoke is doing to your lungs.

Nice tip Lonman,

Erm, what the hell is 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax

Could someone translate that to British :confused:

An even better way to remove the stains would be to smoke outside or quit smoking.

Very respectable of you, my parents do the same. Can't see the point in making your home smell and stain the walls etc. I actually find people who smoke inside quite odd :p :D

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
