ELi5 Why do belly buttons collect lint??

And why don’t all my t-shirts have a hole in my belly button area?!

Most hairs on your belly are growing in the direction of the belly button. When wearing clothes that are susceptible to generate lint while you are moving around the lint can only travel in the direction of the belly button, eventually collecting there.

Having a smooth, hairless belly should therefore also reduce lint accumulation.

If you use the pieces of toenail you bite off to scrape it out you don’t have to worry about it
