Detritus

-Waste or debris of any kind

How I encountered this word:

So, this isn’t really a new word per se, so much as it is simply a good word. I was at my grandparent’s house for the holiday, and in the spirit of killing time between meals I was looking through one of those magazines that sell useless crap, not unlike the Chinese Trading Post. Usually you don’t see higher level words in the product description of such magazines. A pet dander remover caught my eye, and in the details it read, “removes pet fur, dander and other detritus“. I was impressed with their wordage, and thought I ought to give them a shout out for it.
