If you wear dentures you know how easily they stain. I used to use two tablets without much improvement and it gets expensive. I have found that if you add some hydrogen peroxide to the bath along with a cleaning tablet the dentures just sparkle! I have been doing this for quite a while now and my smile is brighter than ever.

This is a guide about using hydrogen peroxide for cleaning dentures. Hydrogen peroxide is a good cleaner for dentures, and a product many of us already have in the medicine cabinet.

How do you get coffee and tea stains off of dentures? I use denture tablets every night and have also soaked them in Clorox for 7 minutes a day.

Use baking soda & vinegar. Start out with 1 TBL of baking soda & 1/4 cup vinegar & swish. This should remove the stains. It's also good to use the same recipe on your other coffee stained products.

I soak mine in plain old hydrogen peroxide. Costs 50 cents a bottle at the dollar store. I smoke and drink a lot of coffee and this has worked wonders.

Soak them in warm water and the Fixodent will soften and then you can just brush it off.

I drank grape juice and when I took my dentures out to soak them there was a stain from the grape juice. I let them soak overnight in denture cleaner and then used tooth paste because the stain was still there. Any one know how to get the stain out? Thanks.

If you aren't using your dentures then they must always be kept in water. If they aren't then they can crack by drying out.

Fresh and effective. Replace denture cleaning powder or tablets with a tablespoon baking soda in water.

Is baking powder the same as baking soda?

Editor's Note: No, they are different. This explains the difference: (01/28/2010)

So sorry. I meant to say baking soda. (01/29/2010)

Oh OK, I was wondering about that. The front page said baking powder. Soda makes much more sense. I have very expensive dentures and the ONLY thing my prosthodontist want mine cleaned with is Stain Away, nothing else but. (01/29/2010)

My dentist said white vinegar (full strength for a few minutes) was just as good as the way they clean dentures at the office. (01/30/2010)

This question is for denture wearers. Is there a home product one can use to clean dentures instead of buying a product from the drug store?



Cleaning Dentures

You can also put in a glass bowl with some baking soda.then add vinegar to get the bubble effect. cleans and deodorizes. Smokers/coffee drinkers who wear dentures should use this. It brightens. (04/20/2005)

To clean your dentures effectively, put them in a container and cover them with vinegar and let them soak overnight. Gets them sparkling clean and saves you buying cleaning tablets.

My dentist told me to use half teaspoon of Clorox. Clean teeth, have no odor, they will be pretty white

My hubby cleans his with bleach and water (1/2 and 1/2) then brushes with toothpaste for the minty flavor! He's a heavy coffee and tea drinker and has never had stains on his teeth with this method. (07/13/2005)

Cleaning Dentures

I use vinegar and baking soda, or a cap of bleach then brush with regular tooth paste. Never Never use vinegar and bleach together!

You might want to check the dollar trees or the stores where everything is a dollar, they have denture tablets.

Oh and by the way always brush your tongue before putting dentures back into mouth, as that is where most of bacteria and bad breath come from. (07/25/2005)
