How often should I clean my retainers per week?

In brief: Every day

Clean them when you take them off in the morning after sleeping in them. I also recommend a weekly soak in 50/50 white vinegar and water to loosen up the tarter accumulations so your tooth brush can remove this stubborn tarter.

In brief: Twice/day

Each time you take the retainer out, brush it with liquid soap.
