How to Be a Victorian - Ruth Goodman

Dry rubbing of the body with a clean linen towel also helped to remove dirt, grease and sweat from the skin and gave the added benefit of stimulating the circulation" I know, because I have tried it for extended periods, body odour is kept at bay. The longest I have been without washing with water is four months"


Now this I could understand maybe in cooler areas but hotter places that reach 100's we "want" a bath! With sweat and for us women around that time of month - makes this pretty iffy overall.
