WHY DO WE GET NAVEL FLUFF?

BBC Earth (Asia) - - Q&a -

Navel lint, or belly but­ton fluff, is mostly made from your un­der­wear. The ma­jor­ity of cloth­ing fi­bres just con­trib­ute to house dust, but un­der­wear fi­bres get caught by the hairs be­low your belly but­ton, which points up­ward and to­wards your mid-line. As your un­der­clothes rub against your skin, the fluff ratch­ets its way up to your navel. Men get more fluff be­cause they have more body hair. LV
