    It's nice and dark, warm, and often a little moist in there, which is like a big party house for stinky bacteria. It's also one area that is frequently overlooked or forgotten during bathing.

    If you know someone who's got a bit of a smell coming from the belly button, bring up belly button washing in a kind-of silly conversation with the person. Say something like, "Does it feel funny to you when you clean your belly button with a Q-tip too?" If the person confesses that he/she never thought about cleaning it before, be understanding, and tell the person they should clean it with soap & water or rubbing alcohol with a Q-tip to prevent bacteria from growing in there.
