In order to restore the flip flops to their former glory, she used the Pink Stuff paste, which is currently selling for £1 in Sainsbury’s.

She wrote: “I wear these flip flops religiously comfiest pair of footwear I own & I always scrub them in the shower with me.

“But the general wearing of them never got clean.

“Hurrah for a toothbrush & pink stuff!!!! Now out in the sunshine drying.”

In the after shots, the pair of white-soled beach shoes look good as new and worlds apart from their previous grubby state.

The cleaning paste is known to be a favourite product of Instagram cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, who uses it to clean her oven.

The non-toxic, vegetable oil-based cleaner is said to be tough on the likes of saucepans, cooker tops, sinks, uPVC, barbecues, ceramic tiles, glass, showers and garden furniture.

Many people were quick to comment on the flip flop transformation and say they wanted to try it for themselves.

One wrote: “Great tip!!” and another added: “Might give mine a wash today now haha.”

Mrs Hinch – who shot to fame last year for her fun, affordable cleaning hacks – is currently taking a social media break after giving birth to a healthy baby boy called Ronnie.

Expressing his gratitude for how Sophie’s “Hinch Army” have rallied around her during her pregnancy, Jamie added: “All I can say is thank you for your unbelievable kindness, loyalty and the most pure and genuine love we both feel from you all.”

Sadly, Sophie’s first pregnancy wasn’t without its complications and the star was rushed to hospital in April with a health scare.

After her week long stay in hospital, Sophie was forced to cancel the rest of her book tour after doctors told her she needed to put “mini Hinch” first.

Previously, a mum shared a ‘genius’ £2.50 cleaning hack for getting greasy oven doors sparkling in minutes.

And this mum used a £1.60 two-ingredient trick to clean her filthy oven – and the results are amazing.

Plus another mum used tomato ketchup to clean the grime off her bathroom drain in MINUTES.
