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.

As Seen on TV - I watched a home cleaning show where they used denture tablets to clean a really filthy toilet. One day at a yard sale I saw a new box of denture cleaning tablets for 50 cents and thought, why not buy them to try in my toilets, though mine are never as bad as the one on the show. I dropped a couple of them into the toilets at home, waited for them to dissolve, and was pleasantly surprised to find out how easily the toilet cleaned - almost no elbow grease. I probably wouldn't buy the tablets at the drug store, but for a yard sale find, they were a great purchase.

Also good to clean out vases which are too small to get into otherwise. (09/26/2008)
Many dollar stores sell denture tablets. (09/26/2008)
They work well on coffee or tea stained mugs, too. (09/27/2008)
Also work in coffee pots and thermoses (09/28/2008)
Great ideas! Thanks! (09/28/2008)
