Wordle July 6 hints

The Wordle answer today is a fairly simple one, but that doesn't make the puzzle easy. In fact, depending on the words you choose, it may end up evading you entirely. To make sure that doesn't happen, we've put together a short list of useful hints to guide you towards the solution:

  • Today's Wordle word only contains three unique letters.
  • The only vowel is "U".
  • The word would make a good name for a long-haired cat, or perhaps a rabbit.

Today's Wordle answer July 6

Today's Wordle answer is: FLUFF.

Today's word is a very friendly one. Fluff - a clump of hair or other fibrous material. You'll often find lots of fluff around our house thanks to our two cats, one of whom sheds hair like nobody's business, and the other of whom eats it all up and then later vomits it back out onto the floor in the dead of night while nobody's around. Ah, cats.

Congratulations or commiserations depending on whether you got today's Wordle answer or not. Either way, try to refrain from spoiling the answer now that you know it, because it just ruins the fun of anyone who has yet to play Wordle today. So don't do it. Or I'll send my cats to shed hair and vomit all over you in the dead of night.

If you're looking to gain an edge in the combat arena that is Wordle, then our best Wordle starting words guide is an excellent starting point. We've also got a handy up-to-date list of past Wordle answers so you can see which words can never again be chosen as the answer.
