How to clean a stained mug or teacup

Do your coffee or tea cups ever get stained like this? Mine do, obviously. There is an easy way to get them looking brand new, denture cleaning tablets!

Fill your cup with hot water and add 2 denture cleaning tablets. Let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight and
after a soak, your cup will look like new!

Denture cleaning tablets can remove almost all the stains from antique teacups that you find at garage sales.

  • Bonus Tip: If you have kids who wear retainers, after their braces are removed or for any reason, denture cleaners can be used a couple of times a week to keep their retainers tasting and smelling fresh and clean. A couple of times a week when they got up in the morning, my kids would drop their retainers into a cup of water with a denture tablet and by bedtime, a quick rinse and the retainers were ready to wear to bed.
