Greenish yellow tint/coating

I have a greenish yellow tint/coloring on things in my house. What could this be?

If you smoke and the yellow is on everything including walls and windows it's probably nicotine. If you don't smoke and the yellow is like a dry powder on horizontal surfaces then I would say pollen or dust.

Being an ex smoker, I can say things get brown from smoking, not green yellow, so doubt it would be that.

A pic or two might be helpful.
