Lovely piece!  :clap:  I'd like to see it cleaned up, to see if you can remove the brown tinge.  What's the best way to clean  a layer of nicotine off glass, anyone?

Hi Leni,
last year, i washed the vase with my Auntie in her kitchen quite thoroughly, i cannot
believe its Nicotine stained :huh:  Does Nicotine penetrate glass ??
I suppose its possible, but has anyone any proof, or ideas how to clean,
if thats the case?????????
 
Cheers Andy

I don't think it penetrates the glass, but nicotine is nasty sticky stuff and I believe it can be very difficult to remove!  It probably needs a strong cleaner with ammonia, or a bleach of some sort, as just washing won't do it. 

I used drain cleaner on a very dirty bit of antique glass, and it still took weeks!  :o (It wasn't nicotine admittedly, but just what I call 'muck of ages, left for me'  LOL  >:D )
