I was recently asked if it is unlawful to throw used denture cleaner solution down the regular sewer system? I never heard of this - it's a sewer!! Please let me know if there is such a rule?

As a matter of policy, Ask OSAP does not review, evaluate, certify, recommend or endorse products. Ask OSAP is also not in the position to provide technical support for specific products. If you have further questions about procedures and a specific denture cleaner product, it is recommended that you consult with the manufacturer’s written instruction manual and/or contact the manufacturer of your product directly. The manufacturer’s Instructions for Use (IFU) should be able to provide you with guidance on this matter.

Since requirements vary by state, you may also wish to consider contacting the state dental board or state department of health - dental program for further information on this topic.

It should be noted that the product’s Safety Data Sheet (SDS) may contain further information about disposal of the product. Further information about SDSs can be found at:
