A mum has brought her faded old sneakers back to life after soaking them overnight using a very unlikely secret ingredient.
The woman showed off striking before and after photos of the white canvas shoes and said she used Polident, a dental hygiene product, to achieve the results.
Polident is available at most supermarkets and is typically used on dentures to keep them sparkling clean.
A mum has revealed how she brought her white sneakers back to life after soaking them overnight using a very unlikely secret ingredient
‘I just filled my laundry sink with cold water, popped in six Polident whitening tablets and let them soak overnight,’ she wrote alongside the pictures.
She also revealed the ‘before’ photo was taken after she had tried to clean her shoes another way, getting the ‘awful yellow stain’ as a result.
And the viral post was well received by mum in the popular cleaning group.
‘I have a feeling Polident is going to be sold out everywhere tomorrow,’ one woman said.
Others tagged their friends with dirty shoes.
And it turns out the denture cleaner has other uses too, with one woman claiming it is great for getting grout clean.
‘I just dissolve two tablets in a spray bottle and spray onto the grout. I let it sit for five minutes, give it a light scrub and it looks amazing,’ she said.

Others use a generic brand for pleasing results.
‘I use the Aldi denture tablets for any stains or smells in my Tupperware and it works a treat,’ said one woman.
But some people were not convinced.
‘Please don’t let the denture hacks make the rounds again, so many epic fails last time,’ one woman wrote on the popular thread.
