And why is the German term Warmduscher--a man who washes in warm or hot water--invariably a slightagainst his masculinity? Katherine Ashenburg takes on such fascinating questions as these in Clean, her charming tour of attitudes to hygiene through time.What could be more routine than taking up soap and water and washing yourself?
