We'll begin with a few hints that directly relate to today's Wordle answer, but don't give it away immediately.

  • Hint 1: This word is the material that blue jeans are made out of.
  • Hint 2: This word has two vowels, both somewhere in the middle of the word. There are no repeating letters in this word. It ends with the letter "m."

If those hints weren't enough to get the ball rolling for you, then you can keep reading for the full answer to the Wordle. The full answer to the October 20 Wordle is "denim." While not the most common of words in the English language, we're willing to guess most users have heard of denim before, especially if they wear jeans. Hopefully, every player was able to get the answer correct and continue their streaks. Check back tomorrow for another edition of our Wordle guides.
