Experts in the beauty business have discovered a new, secret little tip for cleaning makeup brushes, beauty tools and even for whitening finger nails. Generic store brand effervescent denture cleanser tablets are a quick, easy and inexpensive no-scrub/low-scrub way to remove build up and gunk from many beauty products.

The American Dental Association website says soaking dentures in the cleaning solution helps kill germs on dentures, which people put it their mouths. If they’re gentle enough to put in your mouth and kill germs, it makes sense that fizzy denture tablets would be gentle enough for your beauty tools and brushes.

Clean these items with fizzy denture tabs:

  • Make-up brushes
  • Mani/pedi clippers, files and tools
  • Eyelash curlers
  • Eyebrow/eyelash brush/comb
  • Toothbrushes/holders
  • Hair brushes and combs
  • Plastic shaver handles that hang in the shower
