I'm pretty sure you know these effervescent tablets that are used to clean the dentures, even if you don' have any. Thanks to the ads on TV, we know what it looks like!
The idea of using it other than to wash my future dentures (that I hope I never have) had never crossed my mind.
But as these tablets are antibacterial, they are really effective for cleaning the pipes and drain of the sink.
Once a month, put 3 tablets in the sink and pour 1 cup of white vinegar.
The combination of vinegar and effervescent tablets will clear debris from your pipes and prevent a clogged drain.
Moreover, if you have vases with a very narrow neck, and you can't put your hand inside to clean it, drop 1 tablet inside and fill it with water. Stir the contents so that the tablets dissolve. Leave an hour or two, stir the contents again so that the mixture cleans the inside, then rinse.
To descale a coffee maker, these tablets are perfect: put 2 tablets in the coffee compartment and switch on the coffee maker as if you were making coffee.
Finally, to disinfect the toilet bowl, drop 2 tablets into the bowl let all night and flush the next day.
