However, I don’t think tap water is safe everywhere in the world. I would always ensure that the tap water passes through a water purifier and is adequately boiled before consumption.
We all know the issues of plastic usage – never pour hot boiled water into plastic bottles. Cool the water first to almost room temperature before pouring out into plastic bottles.
Now I am going to feel reluctant to order that bottled water when I go to a restaurant or even from a grocery store/convenience store.
