Hi,

I have an old dresser that was owned by a heavy smoker. Every time I open the dresser, it stinks and is unusable. I have tried vinegar and baking soda and leaving it outside, but that hasn't helped. I got some TSP and plan to use that on the interior of the dresser on the unfinished areas with a scotch bright pad, but I am not sure about the outside. I looked on youtube and someone said they really like the Restore finish for nicotine removal, and then a wax over that. Any thoughts? Could I use the TSP at a very dilute amount (normal is 1:4) on the finish or will it ruin it? I presume it smells the worst inside since it never aired out, but the outside must be covered with nicotine too?

Thanks!!

Your post removed any doubt I had

Adios.
