Bathing in Vinegar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAApart from the fountains, the XVII century Versailles was not a great friend of water. Perfumes and alcohol are usually cited as substitutes. Vinegar is rarely mentioned. To repair this apparent injustice I am showing you here this wonderful solution to a whole slew of problems: you can put it on your skin, in your laundry, in your tub and the evaporator; that’s what I’ve been doing for a couple of days, and the effect is that I smell like vinegar — not a repulsive smell, just a little old-fashioned.
