Cleaning Dentures

August 11, 2012

Dentures in a glass of water.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.

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.

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.
