Old Trivia and Wives’ Tales

History Lesson – Here is an interesting fact from the 1500’s.

 “Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then the sons and the other men, then the women, and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty that you could actually lose someone in it-hence the saying ‘Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water’.”
