Travels: Drinking the Water


You may have heard from me on this blog or from another travel site about drinking water in countries where you wonder if it's safe.

If so, you already know that if you have any concern...it's best not to drink it. Therefore, it's also best not to have ice cubes in your drinks or eat foods that are soaked in water. Keep your mouth closed when you shower and use bottled water when you brush your teeth. Have trouble keeping your mouth closed when you shower? Try this trick...

Cover your lips with lip balm before you shower. This will help repel water from your lips. Put some mouthwash in your mouth before you shower. The alcohol in the mouthwash will help counteract any water that accidentally makes it past your lips. No mouthwash? Try a sip of tequila!
