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.
By Nancy from Mt. Airy, N.C.
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.
A short time ago I saw a post about using hydrogen peroxide instead of regular denture cleaning tabs. I need to know if you use it full strength?
The last response I heard from this post was, "yes" use it full strength.
What is the best way to clean Fixodent off my dentures?

Iwould go to their webb and look uphow to contact them. They should know how to do it.
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.

Try a few drops of bleach or peroxide ina denture size cup mixed with water & soak. Works well for me.
How long can I keep my dentures in water if I am not using them?
By Mike from Minoa
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.
