today’s wordle answer (august 28th, 2022): puzzle 435 hints, clues, and solution

If you’re interacting with the word featured as today’s Wordle answer for August 28th, 2022, you’re either having a really good time, or a really bad one.

This is because the solution to Puzzle 435 has a couple of distinct uses: one in the medical field and one related to extravagant clothing.

It’s a particularly difficult challenge for Wordle players as well. Not only is it a relatively niche word, but it also includes some of the least commonly seen letters from the whole alphabet.

However, there are a couple of saving graces that make things a little bit easier. First, you’ve got a good core of more common vowels to work with. Then, luckily, there aren’t any repeated letters to worry about – so most of the difficulty comes from a couple of rogue consonants.

To help you track them down without too much hassle, we’ve compiled some Wordle hints for August 28th, 2022, as well as a list of recent solutions from over the last month to give you some much-needed inspiration.

Today’s Wordle Answer August 28th

The Wordle answer today is gauze.

A light, loose, open weave fabric, the word gauze apparently comes from the French word “gaze” which means the same thing.

However, no one really knows how the word originated in French. There has been some speculation that it’s related to Arabic gazz, a raw silk that’s produced in and associated with the city of Gaza.

Medical gauze that’s used in bandages is usually made of bleached, sterile cotton and is called gauze because of the visual similarity between the two materials rather than an etymological link.

With that puzzle finally finished, take on your next challenge with these Wordle alternatives from around the internet!
