Cleaning Fleece Lined Crocs can be relatively simple with a few basic steps. Fleece Lined Crocs are comfortable and warm, but they can become dirty and develop odors over time.
Remove Any Loose Debris
Before you start cleaning, remove any loose dirt, mud, or debris from the surface of the Crocs. You can tap them together or use a brush to help with this.
Prepare A Cleaning Solution
In a basin or sink, mix a small amount of mild detergent with warm water. Use a teaspoon or so of detergent in a basin of water. Make sure the water is not too hot, as extreme heat can damage the Crocs.
Dip a soft-bristle brush or a toothbrush into the soapy water and gently scrub the fleece lining and the outer surface of the Crocs. Pay special attention to stained or soiled areas. Be gentle to avoid damaging the fleece.
After scrubbing, rinse the Crocs with clean, warm water to remove all the soapy residue. Ensure there is no detergent left, as it can leave stains or cause skin irritation.
Remove Odors (if necessary)
To remove odors, you can sprinkle a small amount of baking soda inside the Crocs. Let it sit for a few hours or overnight to absorb any odors. Then, shake out the baking soda and rinse the Crocs with water. Alternatively, you can use a fleece-safe fabric spray to eliminate odors.
Dry The Crocs
Pat the Crocs dry with a clean cloth or paper towels. Be gentle, especially with the fleece lining, as excessive rubbing can cause damage.
Air Them Out
After cleaning, let the Crocs air dry in a well-ventilated area. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources like radiators, as they can deform the Crocs or damage the fleece. Stuff the Crocs with newspaper or paper towels to help them maintain their shape while drying.
To keep your fleece-lined Crocs in good condition, it’s a good idea to brush off loose dirt regularly and store them in a clean and dry place when not in use.
Keep in mind that the specific cleaning recommendations may vary depending on the type and brand of your fleece-lined Crocs, so always check the care instructions provided by the manufacturer if available. Additionally, avoid using harsh chemicals, bleach, or machine washing, as these can damage the fleece and the Crocs’ material.
