Viral Youtube Video - What Hygiene Was Like For Medieval Peasants

Although cleanliness in the Middle Ages was primitive compared to what modern people enjoy, it doesn’t mean medieval hygiene didn’t exist. Despite living in an era long before indoor plumbing, shampoo, and nail salons, people used the best hygiene practices they could. Unfortunately, they didn’t have a lot to work with. Peasants had it especially bad and weren’t often able to afford luxuries like more than one set of clothing. For the lower classes, personal hygiene in the Middle Ages meant keeping clean however you could, even if it wasn’t easy.
