You can now get a tiny brush that’s specially made to clean your belly button.

Yep, that’s right – you can now buy mini brushes made especially for cleaning out your belly button.

You might be screwing up your face reading that, but you can’t deny they’re definitely needed.

Somehow, belly buttons produce a lot of stink – and just like all the other parts of our body, they need a good clean from time to time. Especially if you’ve got a piercing down there.

In fact, a study conducted in 2012 found that there’s a whopping 67 different types of bacteria found in the average belly button. If that doesn’t make you want to get one of these miniature bad boys, we don’t know what will.

Called the Belly Button Lint Brush, these devices are made by Etsy seller MaggiesCraftSale and come in a range of different colours like pink, purple, green, red and orange.


Available for £2.70, it’s advised you use yours once a week to keep everything down there spick and span.

Composed of an adorable and tiny pipe cleaner lint brush with wood handle, the miniature belly button brushes have been giving people some good laughs online.


People online are going mad for them, with some having been bought seriously and others as a practical joke.

One reviewer’s husband light-heartedly suggested adding longer handles to accommodate those with deep belly buttons, whilst another said her children took theirs into school.

But the best review by far?


“Super funny and awesome stocking stuffer! And it actually works quite well.”

Say no more. The future is here, and clearly it’s belly button lint-free.
