Remember to remove your retainer whenever you eat, drink, and brush/floss.
Brush your retainer every time you brush your teeth and rinse with cold water.
You should never soak a retainer in peroxide or any type of mouthwash. It is advised to occasionally soak your retainer in a denture cleaning solution (once a week or so).
When not in use, place your retainer in the protective case.
Hot water can actually melt your retainer! Never wash in hot water or drink hot beverages when wearing it. Also, keep it away from heat sources and direct sunlight.
Keep your retainer away from children and pets which can damage it.
