well this is what i would do wash the cabinet with mild dish washing soap
make that wipe it down then wipe with clean damp rag that should get the crud off the outside next i would remove the tubes and wipe them off too as they tend to hold the nicotine goop be sure amp is off and ground the plate caps put them back in then put a couple of dryer sheets inside cover with large trash bag for a couple of days then REMOVE the dryer sheets make sure every is in place close it up that should help a great deal hope that helps
I once loaned a radio to a buddy, and it came back stinking of smoke and wet dog......after wiping down the outside I put the radio in front of a box fan for a couple of days, and the smell was completely gone......in the case of an amp i would turn it on and let it heat up and leave it in front of the fan...
Just my two cents.

If it a tube type, take the tubes out and wash the amp in a dishwasher.
I have found that clorox disinfecting wipes available at grocery stores will remove all the crud including that on the knobs and switches. Make sure the power is disconnected and the high voltage is bled off!
