How to get rid of nicotine stains
If you've been smoking, there's a good chance that you've also been smoking cigarettes and cigars. Unfortunately, nicotine stains are common after smoking. Here's how to get rid of them:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Sprinkle baking soda on a baking sheet and place the cigarettes on top. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cigarettes are completely burned.
3. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it cool. The cigarettes will have melted and transferred their nicotine stains to the baking soda.
4. Pour water into a spray bottle and mist the stained area with the water. Let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub the area with a brush. If necessary, repeat the process of water spraying and scrubbing until the nicotine stains are gone.
