There are so many things that you can clean with denture tablets. They’re inexpensive and they work surprisingly quickly!
This might sound a little ridiculous, but actually it’s just ridiculous-sounding enough that you’d better believe it works really well. No one would be buying denture tablets for cleaning if it wasn’t absolutely amazing. A few months ago I tried cleaning a bottle vase with denture tablets and I was amazed at how it sparkled afterward, even with all the buildup that was inside from me using it so often and never cleaning it. It worked so well that I started using denture tablets to clean other vases that didn’t really need a super special method of cleaning because it’s just so easy, so effective, and so quick. And then I started wondering what else I could clean with these little pellets of cleaning power. So here are some things you can clean with denture tablets!
How to Clean With Denture Tablets
The method is the same basically no matter what you’re cleaning. First, add warm water. Next, add a denture tablet or two and wait until the fizzing stops. Finally, empty out the water and give your item a wipe if you’re able to. I’ve found with the bottle vases that they don’t usually need a wipe, but sometimes a little swish with some fresh water and uncooked rice will help remove any remaining build-up that didn’t come off with the tablet alone.
What to Clean With Denture Tablets
Stained Coffee Mugs
It might not be quite as obvious, but all mugs get stained, not just the white ones. I tend to ignore some of my black and navy blue mugs because I don’t notice the staining quite as much, but then the light will hit one in just the right way one day and it’s not a pretty picture. The denture cleaning tablet is an easy way to de-stain all your mugs quickly.
Plastic Food Containers
Remove staining from dark-colorer food quickly and easily.
After removing excess air from between the bristles, soak them in a sink of warm water with a couple of denture tablets to remove build up from dirt, oil, and hair products. The denture tablets will even deodorize your brush for you!
Of course. This was how I first discovered the magical cleaning power of denture tablets. 🙂
Toilets and Sinks
A great way to power away tough build-up on your bathroom fixtures without hours of scrubbing.
Use denture tablets in a container of warm water to clean hard stones like diamonds as well as gold. Avoid using the denture tablets on more delicate things like pearls or lapis.
Fizz away build-up in your drains by dropping in a couple of denture tablets and pouring some warm water down afterward.
