Easily clear floats by adding .clearfix to the parent element. Utilizes the micro clearfix as popularized by Nicolas Gallagher. Can also be used as a mixin.

<div class="clearfix">...</div>
// Mixin itself
.clearfix() {
  &:after {
    content: " ";
    display: table;
  &:after {
    clear: both;

// Usage as a mixin
.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 class="btn btn-secondary float-xs-left">Example Button pulled left</button>
  <button class="btn btn-secondary float-xs-right">Example Button pullred right</button>
