She wiped the toothbrush in one motion, starting at the front and then working her way back.

After a few minutes, the toothpaste was wiped off with a clean damp cloth.

In the comments, other Instagram users tagged their friends to continue sharing the hack across the internet.

‘Brilliant. Another cool trick is to use the Pink Stuff paste and Magic Eraser sponge,” suggested another.

Carolina has garnered a social media following of more than 4.8 million people by sharing “awesome” cleaning videos.

The best way to clean sneakers

1. Use a dry brush – remove dirt from the outsole, midsole and upper with a dry, soft-bristled shoe brush. No shoe brush? No problem – an old toothbrush will do, too

2. Prepare a mild cleaning solution – mix warm water with a small amount of mild detergent

3. Wash the laces – remove the laces and apply a small amount of the mild cleaning solution. Massage the laces, rinse and then dry with a soft cloth

4. Wash the soles – apply the mild solution to a soft bristle brush and brush the outsole and midsole. Dry with a soft cloth

5. Wash and blot – use the mild solution and a soft bristle brush or soft cloth to clean the upper. Then use a dry microfiber cloth or soft cloth to blot and remove as much soapy moisture and dirt as possible. Repeat if necessary

6. Allow to air dry at room temperature
