Fancy a vintage shower? New museum shows hygiene habits of the past. Report by Danuta Isler.
Museum showcasing the history of dirt - and soap - opens in the northern city of Bydgoszcz.
"In our museum, you can touch everything..." says Daria Kieraszewicz, local tour-guide in Bydgoszcz and one of creators of the newly opened Museum of Soap and the History of Dirt.
From jumping under 19th century shower, to the hands-on experience with soap making, Museum's guest can get a taste of how our forefathers handled hygiene.
Danuta Isler steps into the vintage bath to discover just how challenging staying clean used to be, back when both religion and science opposed excessive cleanness.
