ablution \ə-ˈblü-shən\ noun: 1 a. the washing of one’s body or part of it (as in a religious rite), b. plural the act or action of bathing

Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French, from Late Latin ablutio, from Latin abluere to wash away, from ab- + lavere to wash

Does this word make you think of lutefisk, too?
