Dazzling Dentures

Save money on fancy cleaners with these tips!

  from Penny Pincher's Almanac

If you wear dentures, don’t waste your hard-earned money on fancy cleaners. Combine 1 tablespoon of household bleach and 1 teaspoon of water softener in 1 cup of water.

Place removable full dentures (those with no metal parts) in the solution and soak for 1/2 hour. Remove the dentures and brush and rinse them thoroughly with plain water. Store your dentures in plain water when you’re not wearing them.

To get rid of calcium deposits on dentures, soak them overnight in 1/2 cup of white vinegar ever two weeks. Then brush and rinse thoroughly.
