centurion Posted 14 October , 2013 Share Posted 14 October , 2013 No not Downton Abbey or Krönungsstraße! From 1915 as a result of Allied embargos on oils, fats and oleaginous grains soap was strictly rationed in Germany the monthly allowance being 50 grammes of solid (bar) soap and 125 grammes of powder. This is not a lot of soap, furthermore it was a form of ersatz soap containing no fats or oils (these being reserved for explosives production) and made up from a combination of clay and resin. Does any one know if this had any long term health and hygiene issues (apart from possibly making travel on commuter trains unpleasant)? What was the soap situation in Britain and France?
