The AskHistorians Podcast


May 13, 2016

ColeVintage talks about how people used to get clean and stay fresh. The conversation begins with bathing, then moves into hair care, deodorants, and underwear, before segueing into how personal hygiene transformed into both a social status marker and public health concern. (53min)

This was a fantastic episode. Is there any question she can't answer?
