Fine but I want to know if epsom salt will draw out dirt since it is strong enough to draw out a splinter.

You need to get inside of belly button to clean it right. And, you can use a Q-tip or cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to do a really good job without having to apply much pressure.

We use drawing salve for splinters---it's thick and black. Epsom salt for a belly button? I'd do the peroxide---or better yet--just suck it up and scrub that little hole out in the shower....with soap. I mean really--it takes about 5 seconds...I think you can do it.
