Did you know that washing your teeth with charcoal was once believed to make them whiter? Or that Victorian ladies were encouraged to drink vinegar in order to appear pale and delicate? The Victorians may have given us the Industrial Revolution and advances in medicine and science, but they also relied on child labour and extolled the benefits of opium. From the strange to the downright unsavoury, learn 'What the Victorians Didn't Do For Us'.
