When you get fitted at your orthodontist for a retainer, they may offer to do a professional cleaning on a regular basis. However, it's not necessary to get your retainer or other oral appliance professionally cleaned. With the CustMbite All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner, you can get a high-quality cleaning right in the comfort of your own home or on the go.

What are the natural ways I can clean my retainer effectively at home?

There are other natural ways that you can clean your retainer at home other than using the CustMbite All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner. Unfortunately, they each have some serious downsides.

For one, you can use vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. Some people soak their retainer, snore guard, dental bridge, or other oral appliance in vinegar for half an hour and then soak it in hydrogen peroxide for half an hour. Then they rinse it off and put the oral appliance back in their mouth. Does that sound good to you? Of course not. That's because no matter how much you rinse it in water, it's still going to taste like vinegar and hydrogen peroxide — nobody wants something in their mouth that tastes like that.

There is a natural solution that tastes much better than vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, and that is baking soda. You can make a paste using baking soda and water. Then you use a soft-bristled toothbrush to scrub your retainer, dentures, sports mouth guard, or other oral appliance with it. This can definitely clean and disinfect your oral appliance, but there is one major downfall. Because baking soda is abrasive, it doesn't matter how soft of a brush you use, or even if you just use your finger to rub it on — it will cause scratches on the surface of your retainer. These scratches tend to get full of bacteria, which in turn can make you sick. The scratches also cause unsightly stains.

So how should I clean my retainer at home?

Fortunately, the easiest way is also the best way. Using CustMbite's All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner, all you need to do is spray the cleaner on your retainer or other oral appliance. You can leave the spray on for up to two hours to disinfect it fully, then wipe it off with a soft cloth, rinse it in cold water, and pop it back in your mouth. The CustMbite All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner has a minty-fresh taste that will make your mouth happy and give you a reason to smile.
