Use Denture Tablets To Clean Vases With Too Small Openings

Huge vase w/ a teeny tiny opening? Can't get a sponge in there much less your hand? But it is so big a test tube brush won't cut it? Fill with warm water, drop a denture tablet in, swish around & let the fizzy clean the inside of your vase. Let sit then swish & empty. Easy, non toxic, & handy.
