I’m going to be traveling soon (more about that in the coming weeks) and will be spending time in places where you Don’t Drink the Water. Or else.
I already know about some common pitfalls and mistakes. I know, for instance, that you also Don’t Use the Ice Cubes. And Don’t Eat Fruit unless you’ve peeled it yourself. Ditto on not eating raw veggies, which may have been washed in the Dreaded Water. (Which pretty much blows my whole nutritional plan. Ah well.) I’ll brush my teeth only with bottled stuff.
But I can’t figure this: Can you wash dishes in the native water without inadvertently doing horrible things to your guts? Unless I have better info, I’m planning to take iodine tablets and wash dishes only in treated water. But if you’ve spent time in those Don’t Drink the Water places and have better info, I’d sure appreciate you dropping your advice and suggestions in the comments section. Thanks!
