You’ve heard the saying … “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”.
This expression is often used for an unavoidable error where something good is eliminated while trying to get rid of something bad.
Have you ever wondered how the saying came to be?
Well, 500 years ago (give or take a few years), daily life was far different than what we’ve grown accustomed to, today.
For example, in the 1500’s, when it came to personal hygiene, many people bathed only once per year! To make matters worse, an entire family would bathe in the very same water!
The “order of operations” generally involved the adult male bathing first, followed by the adult female.
Any children they had would then get their ‘turn in the tub’ – from oldest to youngest.
As you can imagine, by the time the babies found their place in the queue, the bath water would be filthy!
So much so, in fact, that mothers had to be careful not to throw their baby out with the bathwater!
