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.

Stiff toothbrush: They make a denture tooth brush which is much stiffer than a conventional toothbrush.

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.

It is best to use as little as possible of any denture adhesive. Patients make the mistake of putting too much adhesive and distorting the fit of the denture.
