Fun Bath Facts

  • In Ancient Rome, citizens bathed daily at the Roman baths, which often included a soak in the caldarium (hot tub), some detoxing in the laconicum (sauna), finished with a refreshing swim in the frigidarium (cold pool)
  • Early plumbing systems for bathing go back as far as around 3300 BC with the discovery of copper water pipes beneath a palace in the Indus Valley Civilization of ancient India
  • Pedestal Tubs, unlike other clawfoot-style tubs, do not actually have claw feet. The tub rests on a pedestal in what most would term an art deco style. Evidence of pedestal tubs dates back to the Isle of Crete in 1000 BC
  • In the latter half of the 20th century, the once popular clawfoot tub morphed into a built-in tub with a small apron front
  • The Crane Company introduced colored bathroom fixtures to the US market in 1928
  • Up until the late 1940s, many Americans only bathed once a week for personal hygiene

Just because the candles seem to be rapidly accumulating on my birthday cake, doesn't mean I want those years showing up on my face too.  I'm constantly on the lookout...
