They’re durable and practical, but with all that wear, Natives and Crocs can get pretty dirty in the summer. Here’s how to get them looking like new.

By Shulamis Weil

To clean Natives or Crocs, use any all-purpose cleaner (such as Fantastik) and an old toothbrush, and scrub away! They’ll come out looking like new.

If you want a less labor intensive option, these shoes will get clean in the washing machine, but the machine won’t get into the grooves like the toothbrush will. The machine is not recommended for iridescent Natives.


Be careful when using a Magic Eraser, if you choose to use that to clean. If your Natives or Crocs have a design on them, the eraser can take it off if you rub too hard.
