The mum says it is important to spray them with pre-wash stain remover.

Once she has sprayed the stain remover on she rubs bicarb soda into the shoes with a scourer, focusing on the heavily stained areas.

She then lets the shoes dry for an hour before wrapping them in a bath towel and throwing them in the wash.

'Put on a normal wash cycle,' she said, demonstrating in her video.

She added laundry detergent to the wash as usual.

The shoes were then left to air dry.

More than 10k people liked the video with hundreds commenting on it - tagging their friends with dirty shoes.

'I have the same shoes and have to do this, thankyou so much for you help,' one person wrote. 

'@ every single girl at my school,' laughed another.

This is the second shoe-cleaning hack to go viral this week.

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.

'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. 

The woman's 'before' pictures came after she tried cleaning the shoes with another method only to be left disappointed

Polident tablets are available a major supermarkets for $10 for 66 tablets

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.
