Denture Tablets for a Crystal Vase

I was out of town for 2 weeks and when I got off the plane Master was waiting for me with roses. So I had to look through my vases to find a perfect fit. And in searching I was reminded of the disgusting look of one of my favorite vases. That I have to hide away because it looks so bad. Thankfully with flowers in it - it doesn't show up very well.

I told myself that after this bunch of roses I would find a solution to fix it. It is a Lennox crystal vase. I have in the past tried to use a paste of baking soda and vinegar on it and scrubbing with a slim brushes. But nothing would clear it up. I also had another vase just starting to turn cloudy. I had read online before that some people have used denture tablets to clean vases. I was a little skeptical but decided to ask around about - if it was a real solution and several people assured me it had worked with success for them.

So I picked up a box of denture tablets at the Dollar Tree. And decided to try it out.

Scrubbed with an old toothbrush - lightly. As their was a very light cloudy film after the first time using the denture tablets.

When I asked around about using the denture tablets, many said I might have to repeat the process. The first time I filled the vase to the narrow neck with water. And after there was still a light layer of cloudy film on the middle full part of the vase after scrubbing with the toothbrush. So I decided to do a second tablet filling it just past the cloudy film. And then was able to rinse with hot water and it was fine. Better then fine it worked.

No more cloudy vases....

That second vase only had a light ring of cloudy film. So it only needed one time through with the denture tablet process. The whole process was so easy. And here I think of all the time I had been struggling to try to get the Lennox crystal vase clean and couldn't. I will now always use them at first signs of cloudy film. It was a success!
