How did people shower or keep clean in the 1800s?

People in the early eighteen hundreds rarely showered, they washed there hair once a week usually in a creek or hand pumped sink. Instead of using shampoo they used herbal mixtures and home remedies. When it came to bathing they used a sponge and just scrubbed there bodies only ONCE A YEAR. When the late 18 hundreds came around people started to clean themselves more and more.
