Being aware of the importance of water, most people tend to leave a glass of water on their nightstand before bedtime, making sure that they have water nearby in case they wake up thirsty during the night.
If you have ever done this, you have probably noticed that the water has quite strange taste in the morning, right?
Unlike food, water doesn’t contain protein and sugars that microbes thrive on. Therefore, we cannot blame microbes for the strange taste of the water.Never Drink the Water from Your Nightstand- Here is the Reason
Even though this doesn’t automatically mean that the water that has been exposed to air during the night is dangerous to drink, it is definitely something we need to pay attention to, given the fact that it has accumulated a lot of air-borne bacteria and dust.
To sum up, the next time you wake up thirsty and are about to reach for the glass put on your nightstand, simply run to the kitchen and get some fresh and clean water instead!
