This has a very good chance of being true.  Moslems are required to bathe the entire body once a week (Friday before congregational prayers is suggested).  Jews use a total immersion bath (mikvah) for ritual purity.  Bathing in Inquisition Spain could have been hazardous to your health, as I believe is mentioned in A Drizzle of Honey.
