We tried a TikTok hack for cleaning a vase using an everyday household item that is scrub-free – we were shocked by the results.
TikTok has quickly become a great source for discovering new cleaning advice and hacks that you might’ve not initially thought of, and to our luck, we stumbled across yet another way to clean using denture tablets.
Denture tablet vase cleaning hack
Mother’s Day has just passed, and with the occasion often comes many a flower arrangement, either gifted to you or given to another loved one.
Despite our efforts to keep flowers fresh, the time will come when it’s time to empty and clean the vase – and mind you, some vases come in the most intricate silhouettes, making them especially tough to clean.
If you’re wanting to get the job done without so much as breaking a sweat, then whip out those denture tablets you might already have lying around.
If you don’t have any, you can buy a pack of 30 on Boots for as little as £1 (opens in new tab) or the same ones we used when we tried it, the OraCare Denture Cleaning Tablets (opens in new tab), which are 90p from Sainsbury’s.

The method is simple. Just drop a denture tablet or two inside your vase of choice, fill it with water, and let it do its magic. Let the vase sit for 30 minutes to an hour, rinse clean, and then dry with a microfibre towel.
Yep, it’s that easy – and the results look so good.
We especially think it’s genius because it takes the need to scrub inside an awkwardly shaped vase out of the equation and you’re left with glass that is sparkling clean.
However, if you’re in a pinch now and don’t have denture tablets to hand, another easy method for cleaning a vase includes spraying the inside with a white vinegar solution, gently scrubbing, rinsing, and then wiping it down with a microfibre cloth.
It’s an easy cleaning job that’ll definitely encourage you to keep your vases filled with flowers more often, especially going into the spring season.
We’ll be adding this one to our roster of cleaning hacks.
