Best way to clean nicotine from canvas painting?

Does anyone know the best way to clean nicotine from canvas painting? I have been retained to clean a 16 X 20 canvas and I am sure that there must be a way to eliminate the tobacco stains without harming the original. I thought that the Smithsonian restorers would have been trained to do this type of work and hope that someone reading this forum will know what to do.
Thanks if you can help.
