Have you ever thought that you are messy? Haven’t you cleaned your apartment for quite a while or do your weeklong laundry? Some strange reek coming out of your fridge? No worries! People have improved concerning their hygiene. These are some of the past awful hygiene practices that would make you relish the messy life you have.
1. Dealing with a toothache
At present, we deal with toothache by taking Tylenol or consulting your dentist if it’s worse. In the past, they just pulled it once a discomfort is felt outright.
2. Having to wee at nighttime
You pee at wee hours if it is needed, right? Well beforehand, they stay on the bed and pee on pots and place them under the bed till the morning comes.
3. Laundry detergent of a different kind
When they wash their clothes, which doesn’t happen often, a blend of lye and urine are used. I guess wearing dirty clothes is better.
4. Toilet paper has come a long way
At present, we use toilet paper to wipe our behind. During those days, they use leaves. That seems messy and scratchy!
5. Wardrobe change
Perhaps you might have a closet full of clothes, but during those days, they only have an average of 4 outfits in which each is worn per season. Seems too stinky, right?
6. A dirty job
There was once a job known as ”Groom of the King’s Close Stool.” It wasn’t just a job, and it was a well-respected job. The Groom of the Stool assists the king during excretion and washing.
7. Utilizing mouse skin in shaping their eyebrows
If they have unruly or thin eyebrows, they place bits of the skin of the mouse to pack it and then shape them. Still, think that threading seemed bad?
8. Wigged out
During the 1500s up to the 1800s, they wore periwigs, which are usually teemed with lice. They use animal fat also as a hair gel.
9. Prior to tampon and pads
Homemade pads are made from lint, wool, or moss by women during the 1800s and other women would just endure it. It’s normal to bleed in a woman’s cloth. Thank goodness for tampons!
10. Utilizing eagle dung to relieve pain
An eagle feces was used to relieve the pain during childbirth. The mother also takes vinegar and oil, which aid to make things pass through. It seems like they’re making things worse, right?
11. Hair removal techniques and treating baldness
A mixture of chicken droppings and potassium salts are applied to the bald areas of men. And if you would like hair removal on any of your body parts, a paste made out of cat dung, egg, and vinegar are used.
