How it works

Easy to do with just 5 simple steps

1.

Open package and remove collector without touching sponge tip. Place sponge as far back in your mouth as you feel comfortable then gently rub along your lower gums in a back-and-forth motion 10 times (see close-up image). If possible, avoid rubbing your teeth.

2.

Gently repeat rubbing motion on the opposite side of your mouth along your lower gums 10 more times.

3.

Hold the tube upright to prevent the liquid inside the tube from spilling. Unscrew the blue cap from the collection tube without touching the sponge.

4.

Turn the cap upside down, then insert the sponge into the tube and close cap tightly.

5.

Invert the capped tube and shake vigorously 10 times. That’s all there is to it!
