    Moved into a home with paneling that has a lot of nicotine film. Had tried spray cleaners with some success, but this combo will probably be all I need now. Thanks for a great tip! - by PEDDLERSROOST
  • Hey I was shocked to find this! The smoky walls you speak of is that cigarette smoke or other type of smoke? Our town had a tire fire years back and my walls keep getting a smoke film on them. We cleaned the vents and everything and repainted but the smoke film comes back. I will have to try this! emoticon - by MAMABEAR372
  • Never tried this combo. Thanks. I don't have smokey walls, but I have recently moved into a filthy filthy place. (we found stuff dated from 2008 mired in gunk on the floors) - by HAWKTHREE
