Manda told Pretty52: "My daughter returned from a festival and camping trip.

"Her brand new designer socks looked doomed and destined for the bin. I remembered the tip that dishwasher tablets work a treat on stubborn stains.

She shared: "I had read this on the wonderful Facebook community page that is Mrs Hinch's cleaning tips. I ran a bowl of hot water put the socks in and threw in a supermarket own brand dishwasher tablet.

"I soaked for 24 hours then rinsed. The water was dirty so I knew something was working. I then soaked them for another 24 hours in Vanish Oxy power powder.

Adding: "Then I rinsed and put on a 40 degree wash using Arial liquid for whites."

She continued: "The results were astonishing! Nearly 300 likes on Facebook. The socks were saved!"

"It was an excellent tip - it really works as you can see by the photos."

We'll certainly be giving it a go - spending money on new white socks is hardly our favourite thing to do.
