To clean Crocs, first allow them to air dry off. Take a dustpan and place it on the ground so that the open side is facing you. Place the Crocs on the dustpan so that they are facing you with their inside shoe facing down. Finally, shake out any remaining dirt on top of the Crocs onto the ground.
Scrub the surface of your Crocs with a mixture of mild soap and warm water, including inside. If any dirt remains, use a toothbrush to scrub them again. Rinse the insides and outsides thoroughly using a damp cloth or sponge, then allow them to air dry.
If you wish to add an extra layer of shine, apply a thin layer of Vaseline petroleum jelly to the surface of the Crocs using a cloth. Finally, use an old toothbrush or nail brush to remove any dirt from underneath your Crocs’ ridges and indentations. This treatment should be used sparingly as too much will cause damage to your Crocs overtime.
To clean the sole of your Crocs, use a pumice stone to scrub away any buildup of dirt and grime. Keep in mind that this will wear away the ridges on the bottom of your shoes over time. Finally, wipe it down with a damp cloth or sponge and allow them to air dry.
Especially if you have a darker color, you can use a mild dish soap or shampoo to wash them. If they are made of cheaper material, it is likely that the surface will crack if you do this too often so be sure not to scrub your Crocs too hard.
You may also use chemicals such as acetone and nail polish remover, but this should be done with caution as the chemicals may cause discoloration or other damage.
It is not recommended to use Crocs in the dishwasher as it may cause them to shrink, crack, and warp. In addition, although you can wear your Crocs in a pool-like environment, do not leave them submerged for too long as the heat and chemicals may cause them to lose their color or damage more of their material.
If your Crocs become worn down, such as through frequent wear like wearing them on a golf course or for construction work, you can use either leather dye or shoe polish to return it back to its original color. However, if they cannot be restored, it is best to recycle them in a way that will minimize environmental damage.
Do not use bleach or other harsh cleaners as they may cause discoloration and damage your Crocs’ material. Also, do not use detergents with moisturizers because the moisturizers may seep into your shoes and soften them over time.
Using bleach will cause discoloration. Do not put your Crocs in the washing machine, as it may damage them depending on their material.
So this is how to Clean Crocs.
