We've all gulped down water left over from last night—on the nighttable, on the counter, in the car—but is drinking stale water really safe?

istock/yipengge Since Sam Edelman Sera Laser Perforated Metallic Leather and Pearl Studded Platform Sandals 4tTOQpsIu
, it’s not uncommon to wake up thirsty. But whether or not you should sip from the glass you left on the nightstand (was it last night? The night before?) is up for debate.

You probably know that drinking water left in an open glass is not super sanitary. Dust, debris, and even the odd passing mosquito, can drop into the glass overnight, leaving an unhealthy surface scum. Even a closed container like a bottle or pitcher introduces problems, mainly because our skin is coated with sweat, dust, skin cells, and even nasal discharge, so once we put the bottle in our mouth, these can all “backwash” into the remaining water, causing contamination. Our saliva also carries bacteria, which does the same. “If it’s allowed to incubate for hours, that could potentially contaminate the water, and make you ill by reintroducing that bacteria,” says Marc Leavey, MD, primary care specialist at Mercy Medical Center in Massachusetts. “Once you have put your lips to the bottle, you should consume that bottle in one sitting and then discard it.”

But let’s get real: Since it’s your own bacteria, it’s unlikely that you’ll actually get sick Though no one brags about it, many people sip from used drinking glasses, mugs, and bottles without any ill effects. But it’s certainly not advisable to share your bottle with someone else. Neither should someone with a reduced immune system, such as transplant patients, those undergoing chemotherapy, or people living with HIV/AIDS, be exposed to contaminated water.

And it makes no difference whether it’s bottled or tap water. It’s a Crocs Sloane Womens Slide Sandals uyQvFgZZ4

, and up to 25 percent of bottled water is drawn from the main water supply anyway.

So what about leaving water in places like your car? Water left in the sun will heat up, making it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, especially if you’ve already drunk from it. Placing the bottle under your seat may reduce the heat a little, but bacteria will still grow.

Some kinds of plastic bottles contain BPA or similar chemicals, which can leach into the water, especially when it’s exposed to sunlight. There is research suggesting that MUK LUKS Charlie Mens Chukka Boots Da1FlyxoGK
affecting the brain and behavior, although the FDA has stated that the level of BPA transference is within safe limits. Using a BPA-free bottle would eliminate this issue, but not the growth of bacteria, especially if you’re using a metal bottle, which heats up quickly, encouraging the germs to multiply.

Of course, staying hydrated is good for our health, so it’s important to recognize the signs of dehydration . Dr. Leavey offers this advice to stay healthy: “Avoid putting your mouth to the bottle. Just pour it into a cup or pour it directly into your mouth.”

Bus garage employees stand behind the blankets they made to contribute to Project Linus

In the fall, district employees in the Monroe-Woodbury Bus Garage contributed to Project Linus, a nationwide organization designed to give hand-made blankets to children in hospitals and others in need. The blanket drive is usually held in October of each year at the bus garage.

“After reading about Project Linus and its mission of bringing comfort to children, I felt that it was something that I needed to do, and hopefully could motivate others to do,” said bus attendant Ms. Pratt, who introduced this project to the M-W community.

Ms. Pratt encouraged others to participate in Project Linus, including Dawn Russell, the Director of Transportation at the Monroe-Woodbury Bus Garage, and some others at the Monroe-Woodbury Education Center this year. The number of blankets made increased from 73 to 260 since 2012, and the goal for next year is 300. For better progress, they are hoping to make this a district-wide project next year.

People from the community can volunteer to help with the cause. Although Project Linus is designed to give hand-made blankets, people can also contribute by donating money.

“There are several people at the garage that make more than 10 blankets each,” said Ms. Pratt. “There are many that make 2 or 3 blankets.”

Project Linus was created in 1995 in Denver, Colorado by Karen Loucks. According to the official webpage, Project Linus hosts a “Make a Blanket Day” on the third Saturday of February to raise awareness about the cause.
