How often do you clean your navel?

In a recent study, 75% of the people polled said they cleaned their navel daily, although they didn't say why.

How often do you?

You're supposed to clean it?

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

Depends on the definition of clean. Does that refer to simply picking things out of it, or does it actually involve soap and water?

I dig in and pull a lint ball out every once in a while.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

Can't recall anything ever getting in my navel. I've certainly never had to clean lint out of it.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

Well I guess I do every day since I shower every day. I don't dig in there, but I don't skip that part of my body when I'm soaping up.

I don't think soaping over the surface of the hole counts for cleaning it though. You've got to dig in there at least. If you're doing that you can get credit in my book.

How is that even possible?

I mean, I've never really thought about it much, but I just assumed that everyone got lint in there. Do you never wear shirts?

Ok, let's think this through logically. I guess if one has a really shallow navel, or an outie, then normal bathing/showering will probably keep it clean.

But my navel is fairly normal, in my limited experence of my own and a dozen or two females, and mine gets lint in there all the freaking time. At least a few times a week for my entire life I've taken a quick finger slide to it and dug out a little ball of lint/hair.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

I soap it up every day, but I don't like sticking my fingers in there because it feels weird. One time I laid on my back and poured some peroxide in there to clean it out. Gave me diarrhea for two days.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

If you have stomach aches, or having trouble in the bathroom or just generally don't feel good, in India witch-doctors/or home remedy type of doctors (not sure what else to call them) will actually try to cure you of "navel displaced" disease. They all make it a point to tell you that western medicine is not even aware of this disease.

They will gather up all the skin around the navel, as much as they can and massage it vigorously. Then they will place a small round bottomed pot on your navel and rock it in a massaging manner. This is supposed to bring your navel back to its correct place.

I had to go through that once because my dad was convinced that my not feeling so well is the result of having a displaced navel instead of realizing that I was just being a bum.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

I stick a soapy finger in there when showering. The navel that is. Seems to do the trick.

One time a couple years back I must have gotten out of the habit. While sitting at my desk every time I moved I smelled something rank. The navel. I don't forget now.

Maybe he has an outie?

Not really daily so a few times a week. And only when my wife is looking for maximum guaranteed reaction.

Re: How often do you clean your navel?

I stick my finger in once a month just to smell it. Weird when you get one of those hard chunks out. They feel like sand but will crunch between your teeth if you try.
