    Don't ask how i know... but you used charcoal, not ash. The Ammonia in the Urine mixes with ash. Also, Rhett's Urine is opaque. He should probably go get checked.

    Gotta love how they used activated charcoal to “blacken” their teeth... but activated charcoal is actually a teeth whitener by itself! 😂😂😂😂 I use it every day instead of bleaching my teeth. It whitens then TREMENDOUSLY!!! My teeth are about 5 shades whiter than they were before I started brushing with charcoal. It HAS to be ACTIVATED CHARCOAL though. Not just regular charcoal.

    They actually used "stale" urine where they let the water in the pee evaporate. By doing this it left the ammonia which was the actual stain removing agent. You guys just used fresh urine so the ammonia is way less concentrated :)

    Ashes contain lye. A strong soap. Urine contains ammonia a strong cleaner as well

    They also chewed mint leaves. The hair line was plucked too but the paste was put on at night and left on all night under a swath bandage of gause or linen. If the hair didn't come off in clean lines they plucked with a split stick. This is so funny to watch. I loved reading and learning about the past and old practices but never thought I'd see someone TRY them! Thank you guys! Ashes and urine was also used to tan leather or to work into walking stones to crub them clean. You need white ash for clothes or you can stain the garments. Urin was used for many things and could sold. Hens the turm "piss poor."

    The whole time Rhett is trying to get Link to put the cat poop on his arm saying "all the hot ladies did it in medieval times" I'm thinking "ya, those same women also put f'ing lead on their faces!"

    ROFL!!! They used charcoal to blacken their teeth but activated-CHARCOAL itself is already a teeth whitener!!! I actually have toothpaste with charcoal in it already made just for that reason. A Whitener.
    😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😭
    That’s also why they used ashes in the concoction to clean stains. Charcoal absorbs other chemicals and stains. That’s also why they have people swallow activated-charcoal when they OD on certain drugs. It absorbs the drug before the person can digest it.

    🙄 Good lord. Everyone is the comments is diagnosing Rhett from his urine jar. I hope each one of y’all are taking your own advice🙄 So quick to dish it out. Anyway, there’s way too many variables that can alter the color of your urine, so you can’t make a determination just by sight.

  • MB
    MB 8 months ago

    I'd ask my dad if they used those (he was a pharmacist) but he's dead partly because of pills so I can't ask him. He always had some of those around, I don't know where he got them from though. I always thought they were cool as a kid. If he needed to crush pills he'd use a plastic thing where you just screwed on a cap and it crushed it. But that was for at home. Which was part of the reason he died so young. Don't do drugs kids, or adults, or anyone. Just don't do drugs

    Medieval era tech is genuinely fascinating! The dental stuff is literally just brushing your teeth, the cat poop paste was probably meant to be closer to a waxing with plaster or something, and I know wood ash has lye with is used to make soap and urine has ammonia which is another cleaner. All this stuff totally makes sense and it's interesting that we do a lot of the same things, just cleaner and with more exact science.

  • Marie-Claire Lebel
    Marie-Claire Lebel 8 months ago

    When I was young, we had a cleaning book that suggested using a mix of cigarette ashes and mayonnaise to clean some marks on wood. Some people claim it works perfectly, but there's no chance I ever try this. I thought this was the worst cleaning method possible, but the ashes and pee method is definitely way worse.

    I know it makes you feel better to say it, but, urine is not sterile! It already has bacteria even before it gets contaminated by your skin as you urinate. There is actually a study to figure out what kinds of bacteria are present in healthy bladders.

    The urine and charcoal method is not correct, they would first let the urine sit and turn to ammonia"that could take weeks" then use the ammonia to clean clothes etc.
