How do I remove a buildup of nicotine from my wooden furniture?

In my last post I told you about removing bitumen (tar) from wood flooring. On a related subject, I have received a few enquiries about removing nicotine, particularly from furniture.

Some time ago I posted about a cheap oak chest of drawers bought from an antique shop. In this post I said, the reason it was so cheap was because it came in a house clearance from someone who had been a heavy smoker. The drawers were very dirty and covered in nicotine.I had been asked if Heritage Woodcare would remove all this buildup of nicotine and grime.

As Heritage Woodcare works by removing all the buildup of silicons, waxes, grease and grime and in the process also removing most white heat, ring and water marks I felt it would therefore, successfully remove all the buildup from the drawers including the nicotine and, at the same time, should make them smell a little fresher.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use . Give your bottle a really good shake, pour some into a container, take any soft and clean cloth, soak it in the polish and squeeze and wring the cloth out till it is damp dry. Pour the remaining polish back into your bottle.You are now ready and all you do now is wipe, possibly more than once, following the direction of the grain . As previously stated, Heritage Woodcare removes all the build up of silicons, waxes , grease and grime and as the nicotine is in the buildup, that will be removed at the same time.

Heritage Woodcare can be obtained online, simply visit
