How to clean retainers and dentures?
Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a little water until you get a creamy paste. Rub your retainers or dentures with this mixture using an old toothbrush. Leave on for a few minutes and then rinse off.
If you use a removable retainer or do not constantly wear your dentures, for example, you take them off at night, put them in a glass of water where you’ve added a tablespoon of baking soda.
