Washing blinds is not easy but doable as I have done mine. Just a matter of getting them down and outside. Spray with some soap solution then rinse and let dry. Tough putting them back up and getting strings tight. However new blinds are very expensive and yoy still have to hang them and get the strings tight. Being a cheapo I wash mine every couple of years and we don't inhale. Congrats.......What are you going to do with all the $$$$$$$$$$$$you save?

Camper window blinds are freakishly expensive, costing about as much as the window.
Expensive enough to make a professional cleanup look cheap by comparison.

I think "Fire Service" is a national company. I've been in houses that have been on fire that they've treated. No smell! And nothing stinks like a burned out house.

Havn't used it on shades, but it works well on carpet - Spray on carpet cleaner.... Spray it on, let it dry , then vac it off.... Use the type that removes pet odors. Doesn't leave any chemical odor either.

HOLY COW!! $700 a MONTH? Geesh.

Congrats on quiting! I've never smoked but know how hard it can be to stop and how some never do. I hope your wife can stop as well.

Congrats on quitting.
When my husband quit smoking I made my own oxy-clean and hot water solution in a spray bottle and attacked all the lampshades here in the S&B house. I would expect it to work on day/night shades. I had two spray bottles. One with solution for cleaning, the other with warm water for rinsing. It removed both stain(yellowish residue) and smell.

Method:
apply solution liberally, let sit for 10 mins., rinse and wet vac.
