washing uggs in a washing machine?!

Has anyone ever put their genuine uggs in the washing machine? The website says not to :-( The inside sole of mine are getting flat and not as fluffy as before but I don't know how to clean them! Any tips?!

just looked at the cleaning kits on ebay, they're not cheap.

I stuck mine in the machine only last week. I know your'e not meant to but quite frankly mine were hanging - particularly inside as you mentioned in the OP. I put them on a 30 deg. easy care wash (no spin etc and added a small amount of liquid to the wash) and hung them over the radiator (on a low heat) to dry - took a day or so. Once dry I brushed the suede with a suede brush and sprayed them again with suede protector and i've gotta say they look amazing - i'm surprised at just how well they have come out. The sheepskin inside looks as good as new - brighter and fluffier! Obviously i'm not telling you to do the same but this is exactly what I have done with my genuine uggs and it has worked a treat. Good luck if you decide to try

Yeah, I know what you mean, mine were around half the price of yours (had a really good deal on them) but I was still really worried about doing it. Like I said the only reason I ended up bunging them in really was because they looked soo awful as I tend to wear them to death. Another thing I forgot to mention is that whilst they were drying I stuffed them with newspaper so they kept there shape - they've gone back to how they were too! I couldn't really think of any other way to get them clean properly.

They were fine! I have the grey ones so maybe it's because they're darker! The inside has gone a bit curly but it's still soft and not clumpy or anything! I've stuffed them with newspaper and now they're drying!
