Investigating Victorian washing habits

You are here:

St Hugh's students have been studying washing habits in Victorian times. Read their account below.

During our humanities lessons, we have been studying washing in the Victorian era and comparing this with washing today.

We explored the machines in our school laundry room and washed our own clothes.  We even tried ironing skills.

In the classroom we washed clothes using Victorian equipment and found washing in the Victorian era was hard work.
