Woman Gets Filthy Trainers Sparkling Clean, But People Can't Believe It's The Same Pair
| Last updated
A woman who managed to get a pair of filthy trainers looking brand new had to defend herself after people accused her of buying a fresh pair.
Bianca King posted a snap of her husband's grubby trainers, that had gone from white to a dirty, greyish colour after going through a lot of 'mud and rain'.
Although, she was initially just going to bin them, Bianca decided to see if she could scrub them clean and used a couple of different cleaning products, before going over them with a toothbrush and then eventually putting them in the washing machine.
And, fair play to her, they come out looking brand spanking new.
Bianca decided to post a step-by-step guide to how she managed to get the dirty trainers looking so good, alongside some before and after photos, to the Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It Facebook page.
She wrote: "Decided to have a go to see if I could get any life back in these before they went in the bin and I'm pretty impressed with the results!
"I sprayed on Elbow Grease first then soaked in The Pink Stuff Oxi Powder for around 20mins.
"Then scrubbed with a toothbrush with a small amount of bleach on, then into the washing machine with some Ace Stain Remover."
However, while most people were seriously impressed with her efforts, some people accused her of using a new pair of trainers in the 'after' photo.
One person said: "No way that's never the same shoe. There's no scuffs? You can't clean scuffs out."
Another wrote: "The dirty one has two little holes along the seam. The white one doesn't."
While a third said: "Don't look the same to me."
Defending her post, Bianca wrote: "For people saying these aren't the same shoe they 100 percent are!
"See comments where you'll see pictures of the worn down sole with bits of broken rubber as well as the other shoe that I'm yet to pick/brush the rubbery mastic off.
"The reason I uploaded the post in the first place and what I used was not for my own benefit but to help others save a pair of trainers as it was an effortless process."
Others also jumped in to defend her post, saying they'd had similar results using the same products.
With one person adding: "My daughter cleaned a pair of Nike trainers with The Pink Stuff paste and got the same result! It can be done with some good old fashioned scrubbing."
Bianca went on to say she might even give them another scrub to get them extra white - you'll need your sunglasses.
