Can you clean Crocs? How to clean Crocs? Questions I’ve been asked for years from readers because if you’ve known our family throughout the years, you know we’re major Crocs people. My sons and my daughter (literally) live in rubber Crocs. The short answer? Yes. I’m excited to share with you how we clean our Crocs clean.
How to Clean Crocs
I can answer the question How to clean Crocs easily because it was something that I wondered for years. I’m someone who likes to keep my shoe closet clean and our shoes smelling as good as good can be. As you can imagine with a large family, it’s a lot of shoes and a lot of smells.
Crocs became our “thing” pretty early on. I feel like my kids have worn Crocs since they could first learn to walk, I don’t remember a time when we didn’t have them in our shoe closet.
It’s actually a funny story, but when the boys were baptized (which we did when they were a little older) they wore Crocs to their own Baptism.
Fast forward to present day these “little” boys are 11, 13, 14 and 15 and my daughter is 6 years old. The reason I’ve always loved them to have classic rubber Crocs is because they’re easy on and easy off AND they’re waterproof. We’re swimmers year round, so I love that the Crocs are such a practical shoe style for my kids.
My husband is in the food industry so he lives in Crocs for work all the time. He actually has while ones, so I’m all about making sure I keep is Crocs clean and looking bright and shiny. You’d be amazed as to how quickly you can wash and clean up even white Crocs! So when it comes to hot to clean Crocs, I have you covered all the way!
How to clean Crocs is a important because Crocs can have a really long shelf life, especially after you clean them because they look good as new every single time! There’s nothing I love more than seeing clean shoes and knowing that they’re as good as new again.
How to Maintain Good Looking Croc Sandals:
I’ve got (3) ways to clean Crocs for you. I promise you these ways are super easy and super practical for you to do on your own at home. I hope this blog post inspires you to go right over to the Crocs in your house and clean them immediately!
(1) Washing Machine – I’m not kidding. I literally wash our Crocs right in the washing machine! I add a little bit of liquid detergent (literally just a touch) and then wash them on a quick or gentle cycle.
The best part is that they wash up super quick and super well. Sometimes I’ll add in a smaller clothing to cut down on the shoe banging, but other than that it’s as simple as tossing them in and that’s it!
Once they’re done washing through the machine take them outside and let them air dry. The sun is my best friend when it comes to drying the Crocs.
If it’s the winter time or it’s raining, just leave them out with a towel under them in your house for a quick clean. It’s as easy as that. They will look as good as new!
For the record – our Crocs have never warped while washing them in the washing machine. I think the key is either a quick cycle or gentle cycle.
(2) Sponge and Scrub – This one requires you to buy a sponge with a green scrubber side. You really need to make sure it has that green side or if you just have a scrubber in general for dish washing. Take your scrubber and add one of these three things to it:
2. Dish Liquid
3. Laundry Detergent
I want to give you options here. I know that not everyone has Comet laying around, which is my top choice for this way of cleaning your Crocs. Add one of these to the scrubber and then use some elbow grease and go to town! Scrub away and you will see pretty quickly a change in the look of your Crocs.
Set them outside to dry once you’ve scrubbed them good! I do this with my kids Crocs maybe every 2-3 weeks in the summer. They wear them everywhere, so they always need a good scrubbing. If you have lighter color Crocs, this is even more essential to do because it will brighten them back up again!
(3) Soak in a Bucket Overnight – This is one way you can do it if you just want to set them aside for the night and not think about it. Fill up a bucket with water and add some detergent right in there, too. Mix it up so it’s a good solution/mixture. Pop in the Crocs that you want to clean. Let them sit over night in the bucket.
Once you wake up – take a rag or cloth or sponge and quickly take them out and just go over them with a good wash. This won’t be as effective as the top two, but you won’t always need to scrub away at your Crocs. Sometimes you just might want to kill a smell or two.
So the next time you ask yourself HOW TO CLEAN CROCS, I hope this helps you out! I hope you are able to find some good advice and tips here on the Crocs cleaning front. It’s important to make sure you’re staying on top of this for hygiene, too!
