Can you wash UGGs in the washing machine?


First Published:


No, it is not recommended to wash UGGs, particularly UGG boots made of sheepskin, in the washing machine. Doing so can damage the delicate sheepskin material, causing it to shrink or become misshapen, and can also lead to the deterioration of the boots.

Instead, follow these steps for cleaning your UGGs:

  • Gently brush the surface of the boots with a soft suede brush to remove any loose dirt or debris.
  • Moisten a clean, soft sponge or cloth with cold water and a small amount of gentle, non-enzyme detergent (specifically designed for sheepskin or suede). Avoid soaking the boots.
  • Gently rub the damp sponge or cloth over the dirty areas of the boots, using a circular motion. Be cautious not to scrub too hard or saturate the material.
  • Rinse the sponge or cloth with clean water, and remove any excess soap from the boots by gently dabbing the surface.
  • Stuff the boots with paper towels or clean, dry cloths to help maintain their shape while they air dry.
  • Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, as this can cause the boots to shrink or fade.Once the boots are completely dry, gently brush them with a soft suede brush to restore the nap.

For UGGs made of materials other than sheepskin, refer to the care instructions provided by the manufacturer.
