How to Clean Crocs (Quick and Easy Steps)

Luckily, washing Crocs is pretty straightforward. But how you wash your Crocs depends on what kind of Crocs you own. Today we’re covering: 

‣ How to wash your Crocs

‣ How to Clean White Crocs

‣ How to Clean Fuzzy Crocs

So no matter what kind of Crocs you rock, you can strut your stuff in a clean pair

Steps to Clean Your Crocs

Classic Crocs, also known as Classic Clogs, are constructed of Croslite, the brand’s exclusive material.

Since Croslite is made of foam, it is waterproof and incredibly simple to clean. Warm water, a microfiber cloth, mild dish soap, and a cleaning toothbrush are all you need to clean traditional Crocs.

Your Crocs should first be rinsed in warm water. This will move any loose dirt and simplify your work. Then pour warm water into your sink or bucket and stir in a teaspoon of mild dish soap.

Give your Crocs at least 10 minutes in the water. Dirt and grime will be swiftly removed with the aid of dish soap.

After that, rinse your Crocs once again and scrub the heck out of them with a toothbrush.

The toothbrush will be quite useful for reaching vent openings and other difficult-to-reach areas. Use your microfiber towel to polish and dry your Crocs after you’re done.

Crocs can also be washed in the washing machine on a mild cycle. This could wear them down more quickly than handwashing, so I personally would only do it if they needed a deep clean.


How to Clean White Crocs

I get a lot of questions specifically about how to clean white shoes, so before you ask, here’s how to clean white Crocs. 

If your white Crocs are classic Crocs, clean them the same way you would classic Crocs. For mildly dirty Crocs, that might actually be enough.

But white classic Crocs are more likely to have dirt and grass stains than colored classic Crocs, or maybe you just love having super white Crocs. No problem, I’ve got a cleaning hack for you. 

Wash your white classic Crocs as instructed in the previous section. Then, grab your baking soda. Use a clean, damp microfiber cloth and polish your white Crocs with the baking soda until they are sparkling. 

You can do this for lined white Crocs, but be sure to only apply baking soda to the Croslite material, not the lining or any material that isn’t Croslite.

How to Clean Fuzzy Crocs or Lined Crocs

Okay, you have those lined Crocs that look quite cozy. I must admit that I’m envious! But you’re not here for that reason. You will therefore need to put in a bit more effort to clean-lined furry Crocs.

You cannot put crocs in the washing machine or soak them in water because the lining won’t come out.

Instead, get a bowl of warm water with a few drops of mild dish soap, a microfiber cloth, and a cleaning toothbrush.

You’re going to gently wipe the outside of your Crocs by moistening your microfiber cloth with warm water and dish soap (and don’t yell at me for using the word moist!).

Just apply this solution to the Croslite’s exterior; take care not to get any on the lining. You can use your cleaning toothbrush to give the soles and the vent holes a thorough cleaning. 

If the lined part of your Crocs smells a little unpleasant, baking soda comes to the rescue again. Sprinkle a pinch of baking soda over the lining and let sit overnight. In the morning, brush off the excess, and voila, clean-smelling Crocs. 

And if you’re thinking, Melissa, a little baking powder is not going to solve this foot stank, I hear ya! Check out my DIY Shoe Powder for a powerful solution to your smelly shoes. 

Clean Your Crocs

You Croc wearers can count yourselves lucky because they are perhaps the simplest shoes to maintain. Even fuzzy, lined, and shaggy Crocs are simple to clean in a short amount of time thanks to their waterproof Croslite construction.
