During the 14th century, it was considered unhealthy to bathe, the water was a source of cholera. Only the wealthy has access to good water,and the norm was once a month bathing. The court of Louis XIV was known as the perfumed court because they used large quantities of perfumes to mask body odors, and could afford them.
Also, clothing was dirty & stinky because the materials during that time were fragile & the dyes were not good quality, so it was not possible to wash the clothes. As a result there was flea & lice infestation.
