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.

Why didn't they just wash their bodys with lemon, and put some garlic behind their ears to keep the lice from their hair.

And yet, they referred to brown people living in the bush as uncivilized heathens. At least those "heathens" were disease free and hygienic.

Religious authorities didn’t put shame on menstruation ! Where are you getting your information From?

It’s infuriating how the church, therefore society used to demonise menstruation. And of course, some cultures still do. Eff you, people - your very existence comes out of the menstrual cycle. You should be blessing it, not condemning women.

The English speaking videos often focus on the medieval Britain and whatnot, but the medieval hygiene standards were actually very different depending on the region's culture in Europe, so we can't really call the standards uniform. For example, the Vikings or Celts were often portrayed as dirty savages by their enemies or those who rewrote history in the later centuries. But in fact they were very careful about their hygiene as the archaeological evidence suggests. They were "too clean" for some cultures they encountered.

Hot water, hot water cleans very well. I haven't used soap for about 15 years and I am cleaner than most people. I also wash my Dick, balls and ass, very important.

This seemed more like a European thing. Apparently the rest of the world were relatively MUCH more hygienic. Not saying they smelled like roses but Europe was an anomaly, even dogs and pigs are more hygienic than medieval Europeans. Aristocracy and religion seem to blame

Exactly. Positively gross.

There has been a push in recent years to depict the medieval period in a much softer light. "It wasn't that bad" "The Dark Ages didn't exist" "Peasants were actually pretty clean" Historical revisionism is rampant today, especially on certain BRvid channels. Thank you for this historically-grounded video. Keep up the good work.

At that time, india was much more ahead in hygiene ( apart from outdoor toilets), champoo was originated there along with super cheap clothes and neem brush, coal soaps, itar (perfume-for nobels), etc and in hindu tradition person cannot enter kitchen to cook without taking a bath

Wow! First time I've been disappointed by you guys at Weird History. I've studied history and have found all your stuff functional, factual and funny..... oh you were one of my by gone lecturers..... but this time you disappoint, you have given natural therapies, my second Masters degree, a bit of a hard wrap, admittedly, administered by fools in the cases you site but guys..... come on, before chemicals reproductions were developed thatsvwhere we had and used properly with a heathly lifestyle, I am sure you will find have great potential to rise again to replace the all too common crap we put in our bodies in the last 20 life times. How about an episode about natural therapies. But beware because as in all things there are a lot of shisters out there...... Start here ...Saint Hildegard of Bingen, who knows you may learn a thing or too along the way PS How about an episode on Alvin Toflers, Future Shock? Please Keep up the good work Eric☆
