Absolutely Rosa. I do not use the Polident or Fixadent cleaning solutions for dentures and I'll tell you why. I gave the two aforementioned ones a chance to see what the results were and I had some small packets of the best and only one that I now use, which is "Stain Away" and I think I had gotten them from the Dentist's office that I had to use for the making of my teeth. I was a bit of a fanatic for the research on the process and ongoing journey to having dentures and I had a recollection of the very positive reviews on STAIN AWAY so I tried it and I was very impressed by the remarkable results and difference between it and the others. It's available in various strengths to fit your needs accordingly as some people such as myself are smokers and coffee lovers and those as you know are extremely difficult to remove from real teeth as well as dentures. I know that most Walmart stores have it and it is not really expensive but I think it is a great quality for the price and works excellent. I hope you can find some and see similar results. It even claims to be able to remove wine stains! Good luck Rosa.

thank you so very much Julz!  I'll try it but hope the stores sell them as I'm tired of the online buying.  :)  I think I'll also try the other brands mentioned below.  Thanks again!     :-)

Rosa- I just bought myself more at the local Walmart store. Hopefully you have access to your local Walmart and you will find the product in the denture products section. It's inside a box that has a plastic bottle inside where you'll find the best thing to get fresh, white dentures. Rinse them thoroughly before placing them in your mouth.

Dawn dishwashing liquid on denture brush; rinse and soak for 15 mins in 1:1 ratio of white vinegar & water.

While we are still in the early healing phase post-surgery, denturist each week makes adjustments to dentures, and a new, fresh gentle-soft-healing-liner (the soft white one).
Denturist recommended the Dawn dishwashing liquid to clean with soft brush, and a 15 minute soak in equal parts white vinegar and water, rinse well, and overnight soak in just water if you do not sleep with one or both dentures.

Denturist recommends 1:1 white vinegar : water.
Soak 15-20 minutes; loosens any plaque, tartar, disinfects effectively.
Use soft brush and dishwashing soap; rinse well.
Easy, simple, no costly products to buy.

Vinegar can be used as a safer bleach alternative for some applications, like cleaning. It is also biodegradable. However, vinegar is not a registered disinfectant and does not kill dangerous bacteria like staphylococcus.

We give the 1st bottle complimentary in our "goodie bag" when the teeth are ready to go home. We have heard many people love this product. Renew is recommended to use only 2-3 times a week as an "extra" cleaner on top of your daily use. You soak it only for 20 min or longer if you choose. So you get about 3 months use out of it. We have also had people in the past ask for Stain Away.

What is the main ingredient in the tablets used for cleaning dentures?  BLEACH!!!  Do your research people.

Dilute sodium hypochlorite (i.e. a mild bleach) is the main constituent of several brands of denture cleanser. Other ingredients include such chemicals as: sodium bicarbonate - or baking soda, which alkalizes the water, cleaning the dentures. ... potassium monopersulfate - cleaning and bleaching agent.
