Hi Don,
	I don't see any answers on the reflector, maybe you got some direct.
	I've found that in general the nicotine crud is water soluble.  I've 
used water with some hand dishwashing liquid, and a bit of Murphy' Oil 
Soap for good measure.  Paint brush, tooth brush, etc. for swabbing. 
Don't think that will get out all the smell, tho'.  Try putting some 
dryer fabric softening sheets inside, put it in a plastic bag for a week 
or so, and that usually helps.
