10 Tips for Cleaning Using Denture Tablets

If you would prefer not to use harsh chemicals around the home, then why not give denture tablets a try? You’ll be amazed at what they can clean and not only that – they are inexpensive as well.

  1. Should you have a brush/comb which has a build-up of dirt around the bristles then fill a bowl with water and two tablets then allow your brush/comb to soak overnight. The next morning run under warm water and most if not all of the build-up around the bristles should come away with ease.
  2. If you find you have watermarks on drinking glasses or vases then soak overnight in water with two denture tablets. Then rinse well and allow to dry naturally.
  3. If your toilet is a little stained then pop two denture tablets into the bowl before you go to bed and hopefully in the morning with a small scrub the stains will come away with ease.
  4. As net curtains get older they lose their whiteness. To regain the whiteness pop a couple of denture tablets into a bowl then pop in your nets and allow to soak for an hour or so then rinse well.
  5. To reguvinate stainless steel pop into a bowl of warm water with a couple of denture tablets and allow to soak for half an hour or so. Then remove and rinse well and allow to dry naturally, buff to a shine with a soft clothe.
  6. Have your necklaces, earrings etc lost their sparkle? Place in a glass of water then pop in a denture tablet and allow to soak. Run under fresh water and gently brush with an old toothbrush, then allow to dry naturally. For the ultimate shine rub with a soft clothe.
  7. Are your cups or mugs coffee/tea stained? Then fill a bowl with warm water, pop in a couple of tablets followed by the cups or mugs. Allow to soak for half an hour or so, rub the inside with a washing up sponge and the stain should just lift away. Finally rinse and dry.
  8. Thermos flasks are great however cleaning them and removing stains can be difficult. Simply fill with warm water, pop in two tablets and allow to stand for a while (one tablet can be used if a small flask). Swirl the water around, tip water out then rinse your stain free flask. Finally stand upside down and allow to dry completely before putting away.
  9. Drains can easily become blocked and again two denture tablets can come to your aid. Pop two tablets into the drain then run hot water for a couple of minutes and they should help unblock. For a clog that will not budge repeat the process.
  10. If your shower head is full of limescale then place two denture tablets into a bowl or jug and fill with water. Remove the shower head and place in bowl/jug overnight. In the morning replace the shower head and run the water for a couple of minutes. If the lime scale build-up is quite bad then a rub over with an old toothbrush.
