You mention salt Claire in the cleaning of the teeth the Tudors used, in a woman’s magazine I also read that salt helps to whiten the teeth, the article was about home remedies, I have also used clove oil which is available in a tiny bottle from the chemist to soothe tooth ache, it does in fact work quite well, you have to apply it round the tooth area and it does have a numbing effect which helps the misery of tooth ache a lot, of course it is only used temporarily whilst you can get an appointment to see your dentist, the underwear the Tudors used I found fascinating as they have so many layers of outer clothing, I have often pondered on what they wore close to their skin, no knickers or bras or pants but a chemise which was probably like a long shift, but how did women cope when they were menstruating? Surely they must have had to use some kind of knickers then as no tampons were available, it is certainly very intriguing as to what they actually did use, interesting video Claire well done!
