Clearfix

Bootstrap 5 Clearfix

Quickly and easily clear floated content within a container by adding a clearfix utility.


Basic example

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

Use in HTML:

        
            
          <div class="clearfix">...</div>
        
        
    

The mixin source code:

        
            
          @mixin clearfix() {
             &::after { 
               display: block;
               clear: both; 
               content: "";
               }
             }
        
        
    

Use the mixin in SCSS:

        
             .element {
           @include clearfix; 
          } 
        
    

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.

        
            
          <div class="bg-info clearfix">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary float-start">
              Example Button floated left
            </button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary float-end">
              Example Button floated right
            </button>
          </div>
