A mom has brought her faded old sneakers back to life after soaking them overnight with a highly unlikely secret ingredient.

“I just filled my sink with cold water, put six Polident whitening tablets in it and let them soak overnight,” she captioned the photos.

She also revealed that the ‘before’ photo was taken after trying to clean her shoes in a different way, resulting in the ‘terrible yellow stain’.

And the viral post was well received by mom in the popular cleaning group.

“I have a feeling that Polident will be sold out everywhere tomorrow,” said one woman.

Others tag their friends with dirty shoes.

And it turns out the denture cleaner has other uses too, with one woman claiming it’s great for cleaning grout.

“I just dissolve two tablets in a spray bottle and spray on the grout. I let it sit for five minutes, give it a light scrub and it looks great,” she said.

Others use a generic brand for pleasing results.

“I use the Aldi denture tablets for any stains or odors in my Tupperware and it works wonderfully,” said one woman.

But some people were not convinced.

“Please don’t let the denture hacks do the rounds again, last time there were so many epic failures,” one woman wrote on the popular thread.
