Keeps dentures bright and clean? Check. Lifts stains from your toilet bowl? Check! Drop a tablet in your toilet and let the effervescent powers of denture cleanser do the hard work. There are only three things needed and here’s how to do it.

What You Need


  1. Drop one cleansing tablet into the toilet bowl and let sit for 20-30 minutes, the water will turn blue as it starts to effervesce.
  2. Use your toilet brush to work off any rings or stains in the bowl.
  3. Flush, and you’re finished!

We have hard water at our house which means an almost constant ring in the toilet bowl, so I like to keep the tablets on hand in the bathroom and drop one in every few days to maintain a clean bowl.
