Sharing before and after photos of her transformed shoes, Natalia said she’d tried everything to bring them back to new.

"For those who are new to this amazing hack, Polident whitening is a product used for dentures and you can pick it up at Coles or Woolies," said Natalia on the Mums Who Clean page.

"To clean my shoes, I just filled my laundry sink with cold water, popped in six Polident whitening tablets and my shoes then let soak overnight and voila!

"The before photo is AFTER I had already cleaned my shoes and got that awful yellow stain as a result.

"I’m going to do one more soak because there is still a tiny bit of light staining around the tongue but I’m so happy with the results."

Others were blown away by Natalia's post, which attracted thousands of likes and comments.

"Adding that to my Woolies online shopping list! Thanks for letting me know," said one.

Added another: "Wow, I’m so doing this ! Amazing."

Wrote a third: "Must. Buy. Polident."

Said one more: "I’ve got a feeling everywhere is going to be sold out of Polident tomorrow!"
