Do you clean your bellybutton? TMI

This is gross but I came out of the shower and I smelled something like a smelly foot smell. I could not figure it out until I realized it was my Bellybutton!! OH!! YUK!! I am a clean freak too! I used q-tips and rubbing alcohol and a little yukky stuff like wet lint came out! Pretty funny but true!!! Do you clean yours?

  • I try,but it hurts to do it,its pretty shallow. It sounds like you had a yeast issue in there! Swampy belly!

  • I clean it like a newborn baby needs it cleaned with a cutip and alcohol, also do babies button he is 18 months it gets really dry and my hubands gets nasty so i clean his. but he says soap and water is good enough for him. soemtimes though hard soap can be damaging because the belly button is a sensitive area on anyone.
