It's fizzy and "cleans" without abrasives.
I wondered what else I might be able to use it for, especially since household cleaners have become quite costly and don't last very long around my house. I did some online research and some "in-house" tests of my own and came up with several alternative uses for denture cleaner.
ALTERNATIVE USES FOR DENTURE CLEANER #1:
-You can use Denture cleaner to unclog stubborn or slow moving drains. Just drop 2 tablets down the drain, followed by 1-2 cups of vinegar. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and then flush it with hot water.
ALTERNATIVE USES FOR DENTURE CLEANER #2:
- How about the Tea stained tupperware pitcher or Coffee stained glass coffee pot? I tried it for that also and it worked! I filled them with water, dropped a couple tablets in and let them soak overnight. Voila !
ALTERNATIVE USES FOR DENTURE CLEANER #3:
- Drop a few tablets in your toilet bowl along with a little vinegar and then allow to "fizz" for at least 10 minutes. It won't be as hard to scrub and should be shiny and clean when you're done!
ALTERNATIVE USES FOR DENTURE CLEANER #4:
- Another handy alternative use for denture cleaner is removing baked on food and stains on cookware. Fill your sink with warm water, along with 3 tablets. Allow the cookware soak for at least 1 hour and then it should be very easily removed.
Denture Cleaner is better for the environment because it is non-toxic. Since it is in tablet form, it is also very convenient to use.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Although denture cleaners can do the same cleaning job as many household chemical products, sometimes they do take a bit longer. For example, instead of scrubbing the toilet immediately, it is best to allow it to "fizz" for at least 10-20 minutes before you scrub.
Note that a mixture of vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide can also achieve the same effect as denture cleaner and because you can always purchase those items in bulk very cheaply, I recommend using denture cleaner as an option if you run out of cleaners and are in a pinch or if you are able to snag it for FREE to super low (under $1) priced with a coupon and a sale.
