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.

I was reading some comments and replies, and this is what I'm seeing. Hygiene was better in the ancient times. It basically went backwards during the Medieval era.

No!In the medical treatises of that time there are references to the healing abilities of the bath, for example, the Italian doctor Magnini Mediolanesis, who functioned as a court doctor, as well as a temporary regent in Paris University, in 14th century notes, *The bath cleanses the external parts of the body from dirt that remains after physical exertion on the outside of the body ... if any vital products of the third digestion remain under the skin that were not eliminated through exercises and massage, they will be eliminated by the bath* In fact, if we go back to the 15th century, then bathing and eating in the baths were often combined. As noted in a book by Virginia Smith: “Cleanliness: A History of Personal Hygiene and Cleanliness”: *By the fifteenth century, a bath feast in many city baths seemed to be as common as going to a restaurant was to be four centuries later. In the etchings of a 15th-century German bathhouse, a city bathhouse often appears with a long row of bathing couples who eat naked in the bathtubs, often several in the bathtub, while other couples see smiling in bed at an average distance.* He also recommended bathing as a means of treating or alleviating discomfort, for example, for older people and pregnant women. Another example, the Englishman Barthelemy claims that in the 13th century* “when a child has enough sleep, he should be washed three times a day”* . After each big dream of your baby, you should wash it. Also remember that disposable diapers do not exist and that children wear diapers, so you need to not only wash your ass, but also clothes. Barthelemy always explains in the Book of the properties of things (gallic, but not in color) that the bath nourishes: *“We wash it and anoint it to nourish the flesh clearly”* For adults, the bath is a little less regular. Every day, guys and chicks wash open parts of the body, hands, face. The bathhouse is almost weekly. Each area has incubators or public baths. But be careful, the water in the bathtub, when it is too hot, can *"expel the trash that nature hides through the leak of flesh,"* - says Aldebrandin de Sien (Gallika). The bathhouse is mentioned by philosophers. As the Dutch philosopher Erasmus noted in 1526, *Twenty-five years ago in Brabant there was nothing more fashionable than public baths. Today they are not ... a new plague taught us to avoid them.* The Italian writer Gian Francesco Poggio wrote about baths in 1414: *"He who seeks love, wants to marry or seek distraction: people come here in large numbers, where they find what they seek”* Soap in England was made in the 9th century, and then the corresponding soap guilds formed. The prominent kings of the 9th century, Charles the Great and Alfonso the Great, were actively building baths. And more about hygiene in locks: Baths were usually taken in wooden baths. Often some privacy was provided by a canopy or tent. In warm weather, the bathhouse was located in the castle garden, and in cold weather near the fire inside the castle. During the trip, the bathhouse often accompanied the lord with the bather. Some castles had built-in bathrooms. In Leeds Castle, in 1291, there was a 23 by 17 foot chamber lined with stone, which could contain 4 feet of water taken from the lake that surrounded the castle. There was a ledge for accessories, a recess for the bath and a dressing room located directly above the bath. Some of the castle's bathrooms had hot and cold water. Some Lords even had bath mats to protect their feet from the cold. A lavabo, sump or wash basin is a stone pool built into the wall. It was used as a wash basin and sink for washing hands before and after meals. Often a reusable tank with copper or bronze taps sat over a basin. Some lavas were very decorative and had spouts in the shape of animal heads. Some examples of castles with lava are the castles of Goodrich and Conisbrough in England.

This video could have been better if you compared peasants from all over the world rather than just European peasants. For example Chinese peasants were the first to use paper made from silk to wipe themselves while peasants in desert climates didn't have cesspits but rather simply go do their business in the desert and bury their waste in the sand

Since there was no Home Depot or Miracle Grow at the time, human and animal waste was the only fertilizer available. So it's not a possibility that fruits and veggies were contaminated by disease, but a certainty. In fact, the Dutch discovered that using manure under the soil allowed the soil to maintain heat better, extending the growing season. Soon everyone was trying this. Oddly enough, this is one reason why outbreaks of polio were almost unheard of prior to the 20th century. Polio lives in waste and exposure to it allowed people to build up a certain resistance to the disease. Only when indoor plumbing became the norm in the early 20th century did people loose this resistance and the disease turned so very deadly. (And THAT is the only use I have ever gotten out of the term paper I was forced to write in High School on this. Still trying to find some use for the Algebra they made me study.)
Dude this shits awesome.

Its really hard to imagine living in present what those people went about their daily lives. For one, we never give a second thought to water supply in our modern homes. It seems, getting water for basic needs was a huge thing for those people. Really, we shouldn't judge the past with our present morals.

The lower medieval centuries in Northen Italy were certainly better organised. Most people had healthy eating habits and good dental. health, surviving Roman infrastructure was still available, new hospitals, water distribution network, increased textile production, made most citizens live a relatively healthy life in a relatively clean environment.
