    Cleaning your gumshield.

    What is the best way?

    I didn't take my gumshield out my bag last week, put it in on Saturday morning, woke up sunday with an ulcer half the size of my lip! It stings to eat anything haha, tbh I don't know what else this could have been apart from my gumshield.

    You can use denture cleaning tabs too, essentially do the same thing but don't use the whole tab as some can eat your shield a bit. But if it's a boil and bite just buy a new one regularly, they're only a quid!

    I just use half a steradent then rinse off
    I dont leave it in over night just pop it in for a minute or so then rinse
    seems to do the trick

    normally just put it in my mouth and swish with a gulp of water. But from not using for ages, I used my old mans steam cleaner, did the job without melting the gum shield.

    Yea no need for the professional cleaning agents - simple handwash will kill the dangerous crap, then a quick rinse with clean water...

    I agree just run it under hot water until it stops feeling slimy and let it dry. On the odd occasion I leave it to fester I'll pop it in a few drops of sterilising fluid (the stuff they use to clean baby bottles and teats) it can however taste prity bad after so soak it again in clean water.
