There were also washing bags that were moderately common. Bags filled with
oatmeal and sometimes dried flowers. The oatmeal is a natural cleanser and
skin softener.  Dipped in water and lathed on the body it cleans fairly well
without the need for the full bath.

Quite interesting. Do you have some referances to this? Do you know which
cultures or time periods may have used this?
