How Often To Clean Crocs?

How Often To Clean Crocs

It's recommended to clean your Crocs regularly to maintain their appearance and hygiene. For daily wear, a quick wipe-down with a damp cloth or a gentle scrub with mild soap and water can suffice. For deeper cleaning, aim for once every few weeks, especially if they've been exposed to dirt or odours. Pay attention to the footbeds and crevices where dirt tends to accumulate. Regular maintenance not only keeps your Crocs looking fresh but also extends their lifespan for long-lasting comfort and style.

Will boiling water ruin Crocs?

Boiling water can potentially damage Crocs, especially if they are made of the classic Croslite material. The extreme heat can cause the material to warp, shrink or lose its shape. It's best to avoid exposing Crocs to boiling water. Instead, stick to mild soap and water for cleaning. If you need to sanitise them, a gentle disinfectant spray or wipes designed for shoes is a safer option.

Can you put Crocs in the washing machine?

Yes, Crocs can generally be washed in the washing machine - but it's important to take precautions. Use a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent. Avoid using hot water or strong detergents, as they can damage the material. Place the Crocs in a mesh laundry bag or pillowcase to protect them during the wash. After washing, let them air dry away from direct heat sources.

What causes Crocs to shrink?

Crocs can shrink when exposed to high temperatures, such as leaving them in a hot car or washing them with hot water. The Croslite material, used in many Crocs, is sensitive to heat and can contract, causing the shoes to shrink. To prevent shrinking, avoid exposing Crocs to extreme heat and always wash them with cold water or at a gentle temperature setting.

How Do You Wash Crocs?

Now that you have everything that you will need, simply follow our easy instructions to perfectly clean your pair of Crocs when out camping:

Step 1

The first step is to remove any Jibbitz if you have attached them and wash them separately according to their instructions. Then fill up your bucket or sink (if you have access to one when on the road) with lukewarm water until it is almost full with a decent amount of dishwashing liquid.

Step 2

Now grab your clean cloth and then give it a few dunks into the soapy water and begin cleaning your Crocs. Make sure to get into all the nooks and crannies to ensure all dirt and grime gets removed. Keep checking the Crocs for any marks you may have missed to ensure a complete clean.

Step 3

Once you are satisfied with the cleaning, rinse them off with a hose or running water. Then simply allow them to air dry in the shade and never let them dry out in direct sunlight (or they may shrink).
