Hi Dorothy,

Well, when you take your dentures out for the night, they should be in a ''denture cup'' with WATER & some mouthwash in it, or ''denture cleanser'', which can be purchased at any store... The Fixodent will soften and will come out overnight... Get a ''Denture Toothbrush''... althought you might think it would be for brushing your Dog's teeth ,... as it has a pointed thinner brush on one end that will get into the crevices of your denture...and the brush head is wide & HARDER too... Not for using inside you mouth because of the size.. I purchased my ''Denture Brush'' at the ''Dollar Tree'' store ... $1.00 .... Good Luck Dorothy... Are you a new denture wearer too? It's definitely a ''process''...

Hi Dorothy, have you seen our YouTube video on how to clean your dentures? It might help! You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGSVPLT2gjs.
 
You can clean your dentures with a special denture brush, as well as soak them in a denture cleanser like Fixodent Plus Scope Denture Cleanser. This will help to kill the bacteria that causes bad breath.

Hope this helps!
