The “not washing for years” part kinda threw me a little, not going to lie, I do love my baths! When I was a little girl there was a book series I loved, the main character was Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, who was like a quirky Mary Poppins. In one book she is in charge of these two children and either one of them, or possibly both of them, hated baths. Eventually they/he/she get so filthy and crusted in dirt that radishes start growing on their/his/her skin! I do love radishes so perhaps some horseradish and onions as well to cover up my stench!!! Hahahaha
