Having been younger myself... as young as 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and so on... I now find myself in my 60s (61, if you insist) married to a man who is closer to his 70s (69 this coming October). And somewhere in our late 50s/early 60s, my husband (man of
my dreams) came to need some dentures and thus Fixadent entered our lives. And by that I mean I've got Fixadent (which is pink) plastered on many things which are remotely located near the bathroom sinks.
Sweet hubby (aka Mike) has never been one to treat life's challenges with a gentle hand. If he made model airplanes as a kid, I expect they became paper weights. I can't diss him for this. It's how he works. It's part of who he is and, thus, it's part
of the man I love. But I can't say I'm crazy about dried Fixadent specks on our bathroom walls, bathroom faucets, my Braun 3D toothbrush and (I admit even I was surprised) inside our bathroom drawers and on the exterior wicker finish of same drawers.
I've tried cleaning the offending Fixadent with the scrub side of a sponge, with my finger nails, with kitchen knives, and with single-edged razor blades. I've managed to succeed in cleaning nearly all although, I confess, I wound up painting the bathroom
wall after too many "high-gusto" efforts to remove the dreaded pink blots.
I asked Mike if he might take it easy on the denture cleaning and he told me he'd been trying. This is the same man who, in a moment of gentleness, ruptured a firm and justly picked pumpkin. So I know he's doing his best. And thus, I asked if — perhaps
— he might check the Fixadent website for tips on how to clean because I've run out of fingernails. He looked, sent me a link, and all I have to do is throw our bathroom walls into a regular washer and dryer.
And now I turn to you. I know you're not all in your denture years, let alone sticky stuff that finds its way to the back side of a bathroom faucet, or the wall just beneath the outlet where you plug in your Braun 3D.
But, if you've been through this, and have discovered a magical cure for removing the offensive pink, please, please, please, send your cure my way. Otherwise, I'm destined to repainting my bathrooms on a near monthly basis.
Thanking you, so very much, in advance.
