Denture cleaning tablets have many other cleaning uses. This is a guide about cleaning uses for denture tablets.
To clean stains from the toilet bowl, drop 1 or 2 denture cleaners in and allow to sit overnight.

When cleaning out my moms bathroom cabinet I came across an old packet of denture tabs. Rather than toss them I popped two in the toilet & was pleasantly surprised how well they worked even in cold water. Now I use them all the time between cleanings & they do a good job keeping the toilet fresh.

Be careful on that. If its an old septic system in can cause problems.
Denture tablets work wonders for cleaning glassware, ceramic type ware, and tile. Dissolve a couple of tablets into a sink of hot water and wash glasses sparkling clean. I drop one into the toilet bowl. It also works on the bathroom sink, bathtub, and tile.
Drop one into a vase after the flowers have completed their cycle and the tablets clean up the vase. Ceramic type baking dishes such as Corningware are easily cleaned with one tablet and hot water. Do not use for stainless steel. I purchase a large bulk box of a store or generic brand, cheapest!

Those things are amazingly useful, aren't they? They're also good for cleaning out vases with necks too small to get your hand into. Plop-plop, fizz-fizz, a quick rinse, and it's clean!
To clean a crock pot, fill it with water. Drop two or three denture tablets in and leave overnight to soak.
Clean coffee or tea stains from cups using denture cleaning tablets, can also be used in other ceramic containers.
Here's a quickie toilet cleaning tip I use. After having soaked my dentures in denture cleaner, I pour the used cleaning mixture right into the toilet, let it sit a few minutes than give it a quick swish with a brush. This way you get 2 uses out of those expensive denture cleaning tablets! By Marilyn
Could denture cleaning tablets be used to clean gold and diamond jewelry? Would it harm the jewelry?

I googled jewelry denture cleaner. It sounds like it may not be a good idea. Go to this link, http://en.allexperts.com/q/Jewelry-Gems-Minerals-689/Cleaning.htm
This guy sounds like he did his research. He says the chemicals found in denture cleaner may weaken the jewelry. I hope this helps you. I saw on a different site that vinegar may be a possible option for cleaning jewelry.
I've always used rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush. Brush always up from the base of any of the little wires that hold the stones in.
A jeweler once years ago told me about using denture tablets to clean my jewelry. I have been using them for 40 years now and my jewelry is still beautiful.
I place one denture tab in a vibrating cup, put in enough water to cover my jewelry, add the jewelry and turn it on. I let it run for 30 minutes, then rinse everythng really good and let it dry. I do this about once every 1-2 months depending on how dirty my jewelry has gotten.
