These widespread practices in the Wild West show how wild the times really were

Sharing the meal

Hygiene at the table was practically non-existent in the days of the Old West. Everyone who sat down together to eat and share everything, really everything.

Indeed, during meals, people shared the same cups, the same plates and the same cutlery. But that's not all. It also appears that they also didn't bother to wash kitchen utensils between meals. This habit has probably contributed a lot to the spread of diseases of all kinds. Just thinking about it makes us hungry.
