How to Remove Cigarette Stains From Fingers

Some smokers have cigarette stains on their fingers from nicotine. Cigarette smoke stains walls, fabrics and fingers. Nicotine stains appear on the fingers that hold the cigarettes in a downward angle so that the smoke envelopes the fingers as the cigarette burns. Dry hands absorb more cigarette stains into the skin of the fingers. Removing cigarette stains first, using hand moisturizers and then holding burning cigarettes at an upward angle will prevent future cigarette stains on fingers. You will need lemon juice and salt, which are natural products that do not harm skin.

Dry hands absorb chemicals like nicotine into fingers.

Step 1

Wash your hands in soap and water. Rinse hands well and dry them with a towel. This will remove any oils in the skin on the fingers with cigarette stains.

Step 2

Cut a lemon with a knife into eight wedges. Squeeze one lemon wedge so the juice falls on the fingers with stains. Rub the lemon wedge on the stains.

Step 3

Pour table salt on the stains and rub with the lemon wedge. The salt acts as an abrasive to scrub fingers and the lemon juice lightens the stains.

Step 4

Dry hands with a towel and use a pumice stone to remove a thin layer of skin gently. Rub the pumice stone back and forth over the fingers for about one minute.

Step 5

Repeat this process once a week until the stains are no longer visible.
