Cleaning Sheepskin: Washing UGGs With Woolite in a Washing Machine
If you don't mind the color fading a little off your UGGs, you can wash them in a washing machine. Use very cold water and a few tee shirts so they don't knock around and also act like scrubbers, and put your washing machine on a light-duty cycle for 10-15 minutes. Add Woolite. Do NOT use any other soap.
Pull out the boots at the end of the cycle and if needed, do a soft hand scrub with a little more Woolite with an old toothbrush or nail brush on the surface of the sheepskin swede where there may be some stains or dirt encrusted.
Place back in the wash machine and rinse and spin-dry.
When you pull out your Uggs, put soda bottles into the shaft to keep the damp boots upright and let them dry in a warm place. Check from time to time so the leather isn't puckering. If it is, gently push and tug to keep the look of the boot.
Ensure equal drying by making the boot is equally wet so there is no water line.
After they are dry you'll want to brush the suede with a soft brush to get the pile up and soften up the looks of the outer surface. Remember to re-apply the waterproofing spray.
Using cold water keeps the fading at a minimum due to washing and from using Woolite. Uggs will stretch with wear. A good fitting pair should fit snug and not too tight.
Has anyone tried this?

Believe me, its the death penalty for your shoes.. And I know, because when mine were totaly dirty, and wanted to clean mine, my dear hubby told me to just put them on a short program in the washmachine,,and I did... I wanted to cry after my uggs came out, the werent soft anymore but rock hard, and the color had faded. And the werent even clean...
I recommend to buy the special cleaning stuff the uggs store provides, and keep them as clean as possible..and when they get dirty,,well,, its time to buy new ones...

Although, I have the minis and i don't fold them down. If you fold yours down at all I wouldn't do it. The inside fur kind of clumps together a little and doesn't look right folded. I will post pics of it. I actually think they may be as soft, if not softer, on the inside then when I got them!
