Aldi’s Di-San stain remover has been hailed as a ‘miracle worker’ in the past and now a Sydney mum has shown off again just how effective the $1.25 spray can be.

Renee Marie took to Facebook to share before and after pictures of a pair of white sneakers that had definitely seen better days.

Many would have opted to bin the well-worn runners, but Renee decided to take a punt on Aldi’s ‘Di-San’ laundry pre-treatment stain remover.

“I had no expectations,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “just thought I would give it a go.”

Lo and behold, after an hour of treatment and a go around in the washing machine – the filthy trainers came up like new.

“This is like a magic trick!” one mum wrote after Renee shared pictures of her laundry victory to Facebook.

And Renee found she’s not the first to achieve surprising results with the spray.

“I’m so obsessed with that spray,” one mum replied.

“With 2 girls under 3 they have not a single stained item of clothing thanks to this spray!!!

“My 3 year old has always worn her best dresses in the worst situations and I couldn’t care less!! Because I know I have The power of DI•SAN.”

“I use this spray on absolutely everythingggggg,” another mum shared.

Others relayed tales of successes beyond the laundry.

“It also cleaned the whiteboards in my classroom,” one said.

“Removed 98% of previously unable to be removed stains... love this product.”

“It’s amazing in your kitchen sink,” another explained. “Give a spray. Nice wipe and comes up shining and clean.

“Using Jif can take ages,” she added, comparing Di-San to another popular household cleaner.

“I cleaned my shower glass, range hood glass, range hood filters (soaked them first in product) kitchen benches, splash back,” one said.

“Love love love it & so damn cheap, but don’t tell Aldi!”

There were a few stories of frustration, however.

“Sadly it did not get chocolate out of my white tshirt,” one disappointed mum revealed.

“I tried twice, still the chocolate stays.”

Another mentioned it had left thin patches in her chef’s whites.

“My chef jackets are thin where I have sprayed them,” she explained.
