Maybe the denture cleanser works, but adding sugar is just asking for a bacteria culture.

While the Randonee may be a good choice for your needs, randonneuring bikes are usually configured for credit card touring, brifters, lighter tubing, higher gears, etc.
I'm looking for my first touring bike. Appreciate any comments on Novara Randonee or similar ($1500 or less) bike.
Also, has anybody in the community had experience of cycling through North/South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi? Is it safe? Is the ride going to be worth the diversion?
what about when it starts thunder and lightning and your stuck in the middle of no where with no cover?
What the heck do you do? just keep peddling and hope for the best?!
Take the same precautions you would in your daily schedule to stay safe. If a situation doesn't seem right move on. Listen to your gut reaction.
The math is irrefutable: 2 pounds of rubber is less than 1% of the total estimated mass of 300 pounds, 0.067. Thirty-two ounces is roughly two liters of water. That delta of the effort to move this mass uphill or forward cannot be perceived. Nor does it translate directly into a 1% change in the total energy required to travel the same distance.
the tradeoff for hauling this additional mass may be one or ten fewer flats across the trip but no one can predict results based only on a tire's marketing or actual physical composition. Many nearly invisible, common and largely unavoidable objects on the nation's roadways will easily penetrate any flat resistant material.
