So in a fit of INSPIRATION laziness, I soaked my Meluna in a cup of warm water and an effervescent denture tab. I have a huge box of them for cleaning my retainer, and that night I was too tired to find my usual peroxide or bother with boiling. The tabs don't contain bleach, and supposedly clean with hydrogen peroxide.


It's rather nice, and very clean and slightly minty! I feel it cleaned just as well, if not better then my usual peroxide bath, and the mint smell is a perk. I haven't had any issues with tingling, or any lingering effects of the mint, and the cup seems fine.

Anyone else do this? Anyone know of a very good reason not to? Meluna is silicone TPE, which is pretty sturdy.

Well no... Your Meluna is not silicone. It's TPE. Will denture tabs hurt it? I dunno. Probably not. They're basically just baking soda, right?

Oh, hey, you are right. I think I thought the older Melunas were silicone. And yes, the tabs are basically baking soda.

I do this with my Fleurcup, been doing it for years. No damage yet and it cleans very well.

MeLuna just added denture cleaning tabs to their store for cleaning cups they won't hurt your MeLuna.
