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

Clearfix on Bootstrap

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

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

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 class="btn btn-secondary float-left" type="button">Example Button floated left</button>
  <button class="btn btn-secondary float-right" type="button">Example Button floated right</button>
