How to Deodorize Crocs

When your Crocs start to smell it's time to kick the odor to the curb. Although Crocs are made from a material that is anti-microbial, which helps to keep odors at bay, this doesn’t mean that the shoes will smell fresh forever. The good news is you don’t have to ditch your Crocs for a new pair, just deodorize so they smell fresh again.

Step 1

Fill a bucket with cold water. Add a squirt of dish soap and mix up the water with your hands.

Step 2

Put the Crocs in the soapy water. Scrub the insides of the shoes with a rag and the soapy water.

Step 3

Rinse the Crocs well with clean water. Dry them completely with a towel.

Step 4

Pour baking soda into the inside of each Croc so the bottom of the shoe is completely covered. Lay the shoes flat in a plastic bag so the baking soda doesn’t spill out and tie up the bag. Put the bag in the freezer overnight. Shake out the baking soda the next day.

Step 5

Stuff newspaper inside your Crocs after you take them out of the freezer. Leave the paper in for a few hours to absorb any remaining odor.
