...your kid flips his retainer into the toilet?
No, I'm serious.
Because this is the kind of thing that I have to deal with.
Am I a horrible mother to consider that soaking it overnight in hydrogen peroxide or alcohol is an okay/safe method to render it wearable again?
Or do I make the "Hi, it's me again. Yes, I know this will be the third time we've had to replace his retainer, but at least this time it didn't get lost/smashed...it just fell in the toilet" embarrasing phone call to the orthodontist
