layout: docs title: Clearfix description: Quickly and easily clear floated content within a container by adding a clearfix utility. group: utilities toc: true

Easily clear floats by adding .clearfix to the parent element. Can also be used as a mixin.

{% highlight html %}

{% highlight scss %} // Mixin itself @mixin clearfix() { &::after { display: block; content: ""; clear: both; } }

// Usage as a mixin .element { @include clearfix; } {% endhighlight %}

The following example shows how the clearfix can be used. Without the clearfix the wrapping div would not span around the buttons which would cause a broken layout.
