The first bathtub installed in the United States was installed in Cincinnati, Ohio, home in 1842. It was made of mahogany and was lined with sheet metal.

I saw a history channel show that had tubs hooked up to gas powered heaters.

Smart? How many of those do you think blew up!?!

I was just kinda listening to the show but it when all the way from roman baths up to now. About how the floor was super heated from below to warm the water.

The gas powered ones were just scary looking.

The romans were very clean...for the time period they lived in

And it was mainly the upper classes anyway who had them in the houses.

Mind you they had central heating which is a damn site better than the stuff in use today.

AND for another bit of randomness

The girls did like to annoint themselves with the sweat of particulally potent gladiators!!!!

Apparently it was scraped off in the steam houses and sold to blenders who valued specific individual fighters over others.

They fixed the "fresh" sweat into fat OR olive oil to be used as a face cream...

Now it has some basis in fact...though only some. They would be wearing the pheromones of a powerful male...so it might not act that well

They wouldn't stink though as the sweat is FRESH(shudder) and not stinky. The stinky comes from extra body bacteria.
