Can you wash ugg slippers in the washing machine

Washing sheepskin slippers in the washing machine is a popular and easy way to clean your uggs at home. It is particularly handy if you are time poor and need to add your uggs to an existing load. This way, you can clean your ugg slippers without specific ugg cleaner as well. The key to popping your uggs in the washing machine is setting them on a delicate, cold wash cycle to avoid damage.


Hand washing is another great option to clean your ugg slippers and boots. All you will need is a damp cloth and our ugg boots shampoo and conditioner to get the job done. Simply shampoo and condition your uggs softly and gently. Be sure that your cloth is not soaking wet and rather, is damp at all times whilst washing. Upon completion, air dry your uggs overnight.

Cleaning the inside of your uggs

If you are simply conducting a routine clean, then all you need is a damp cloth to clean the sheepskin lining inside your uggs. Use the damp cloth to give the inside of your ugg boots or slippers a good scrub and leave them to air dry for 24-48 hours, however long is required for them to dry completely. You should be good to go at the end of this process!

Soap or Detergent

If the inside of your uggs are still dirty upon the completion of the previous process, then you may repeat it using a damp cloth with mild soap or detergent. Aim for something colourless and odourless, to avoid ruining the sheepskin. Once clean, rinse the inside of your ugg slippers or boots and let them airdry until completely dry. They should be feeling as good as new!
