Dentures: Clean Light Fixtures & Grandpa's Teeth

Look up. Do you remember the last time you cleaned your light fixture? Didn’t think so! Over time, dust and dirt have created a film on your glass, turning your intricate rococo light into a filthy, flea-ridden eyesore. There’s a simple solution that erases years of neglect - denture cleaner. Polident or Efferdent work well as glass cleaner and can lift all the grime and grit off glass, leaving your light fixture sparkling.
All you need to make your light fixtures look like new are a bucket, a few denture cleaning tablets, bleach and soap. By submerging your fixture in this mixture, you’ll be able to clean all the intricate nooks and crannies that are difficult to reach otherwise.

    I have those same canisters, too! Got them for a shower gift in 1972. A couple of lids are missing now, but not sure I'm ready to use them for lights. I really like the look though!
