I had just gotten out of the shower last night and i was standing there cleaning my belly button with a q-tip when I began to wonder, "Does everyone do this, or am I overly-hygenic?" So I am asking everyoen here at Mylot, Do you remember to clean your belly button? If you do, how do you clean it? I use a q-tip, as I mentioned earlier, right after getting out of the shower. And if you don't, I have to ask you, have you ever looked inside your belly button? Because unless you have an outy lint and dirt and whatever can get in there and it really should be cleaned. You may be shocked at what you find in your belly button if you have never checked or cleaned it before.

I have a bath everyday and I always wash my belly button, along side my ears etc. I normally use the flannel, but once a week I wil get the cotton buds out and clean my belly button with that once a week, normally at the weekend when I check the children's ears , nails etc as there seems to be more time at the weekends to do these sort of things.

I clean everything every other day, I hate feeling dirty, I would shower every single day but it drys my hair out too much.

When I am in the shower washing my body, I just wash inside my belly button then. I have never found lint or anything gross in there... My boyfriend always has lint in his no matter what, I swear! It's gross lol, but not that gross.

I don't clean my belly button. When I was a child, my parents told me that I would have a belly ache if I clean my belly botton. So I have not cleaned it.

I have never used a q-tip before on mine. I do clean it daily in the shower with soap and water by using my finger. That seems to work well , but now i wanna use a q-tip with oils just to see .

A q-tip really works best because it gets into all the little crevices of the belly button when dirt can get stuck.

I'm a q-tip user. You're right it's amazing how much can accumulate in that thing.

It;s good to hear that everyone is keeping thier belly buttons clean. Another bad place that stuff accumulates is in piercing holes if you don't wear earrings everyday.

Hi Nykkee, You not the only one who clean your belly button. i did it every two weeks. i use a cotton butt and put some cajuput oil in it. Some times i use baby oil.Yes it is very dirty (the cotton butt) after cleaning.

You should still want ot be clean though even if your clothes would hide the dirt.
