Best Way To Remove Nicotine From Ceiling Fan Blades?









I was given a ceiling fan, the blades are extemely stained with nicotine. All the metal pieces/hardware wiped clean very easily but the blades did not. The fan blades are reversible… one side is light wood with clear coat & the other side is white. The white side is the one that is heavily stained with nicotine. I am going to reverse them so when you look up at the fan you see the wooden side, as that what fits the room best, but I still would like to fully clean the white side as well. What is the best way to remove nicotine stains from wood with a light clear coat….not bare wood. Thanks in advance….

    Try a good de-greasing type of dish-washing detergent and ‘elbow grease’. I’ve done a lot of remodeling in the past and the best stuff to get rid of cigarette residue is a thorough washing with de-greasing soap.
    Be careful though, the blades are usually made of press-board and can be damaged if left wet for an extended period of time.

    well I would say dish washing liquid and a sponge will definitly work, but I think you are looking for something with less PT right?
    well, in that case, you could probably try something with a little more power perhaps like an oven cleaner ?
    good luck.. and test small parts before if you try hardcore stuff like nail polish remover, acetone or terpentine :)

    Soap and warm water and lots of elbow grease. You may find it easier just to buy replacement blades. Most home improvement store like Home Depot and Loew’s sell ‘em.

    A product called Goof Off will probably do it. You can get it in paint departments.

    Liquid Spc-n-Span with water. It is sometimes hard to find.
    Other products such as Pine Sol, Mr. Clean, etc… looked & felt & smelled clean but after a week noticed that a residue was still on venetian blinds & fan blades when dust wanted to stick. Never had a problem after switching.

    I have removed nicotine from white wood, laminated surfaces with clorox cleaner and a sponge use it full strength let it set for a few minutes and that should do the trick.
