TRAINERS are the perfect shoes for day-to-day life, but let's face it they're a pain to keep clean.
But fear not, one cleaning whizz has shared how she gets her trainers looking as good as new using two ingredients you probably already have the stuff in your cupboards.
Posting the hack on Instagram, she showed how it's done in less than 10 minutes.
Start with a teaspoon of baking soda and an equal amount of toothpaste.
Then use a spoon the mix them together to form a gloopy paste – it shouldn't be to running or too thick.
With an old toothbrush the keen cleaner got to work scrubbing away and the dirty white rubber around the edge of her shoes.

It's best to do this over the sink so you can rinse and scrub as you go without making a mess.
You can then use a damp cloth to remove the paste from the shoes and leave them to dry, fallen dirt can be washed down the sink.
She captioned the clip: "A little tip, wear gloves when apply the paste, baking soda can try out your skin!"
The cleaning whizz used the hack on Converse, but it would work just as well on similar rubber soles.
