Hot water: Run the denture under hot water and use a tooth brush to clean the adhesive off.

Guaze: Guaze is very effective in removing denture adhesive as it grabs it much better than tissue or paper towel. Drug stores sell it over the counter.

Lotsa work: Hard to do, both in mouth and from denture. Best if you use very little, obviously. Warm water and toothbrush & washcloth for denture. Gauze pads, warm water and washcloth and fingers for mouth. If you are relying on this to hold dentures in, you need to see a prosthodontist for an evaluation of proper fit. The package tells you this. You will accelerate bone loss with ill-fitting dentures.

I'm wondering what is the bast denture adhesive cream?

Any : You should try and use name brand adhesive using no more than 3 pea sized daps. Avoid those containing zinc. Patient swear by either paste or powder try either and see what works for u. Remember though, your denture should be evaluated on a yearly basis. It should on average be relined every 3-5 years and a new set made every 5-7 years. Even if it it's "functioning ok", for several reasons.
