A CLEANING technician has shared how they bring battered trainers back to life with ZERO scrubbing. 

The method is so effective that it can remove any dirt or stains even after huge outdoor events, such as a muddy run. 

The owner of Polished Gems, a cleaning technician in Durham, took to Facebook group Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips to spill all of their professional secrets.

The cleaning hack should cost about 20p worth of products.

People were seriously impressed with the before and after pictures and vowed to give the method a go. 

“I’m keeping this,” one said. “Holy moly, they’re like new.”

“I know some people advise against dishwasher tablets in washing machines, absolutely personal choice,” Polished Gems said.
