Question

What is that stuff that builds up between your toes?

Answer

It is composed of a variety of things: lint fibers from your socks, dirt that gets into your shoes, and dried skin cells that have flaked off your foot. Since your toes are close together and often in shoes, the area makes a perfect catch-all trap for whatever floats around. Regular bathing, making sure you clean between your toes, keeps the build-up at bay.
