We all have our favourite go to coffee mug, at home or at work- we look forward to that morning brew.
Some people at the Kool FM offices will lose their minds, if they can’t find that mug! (Montreal Canadians)- you know who you are….
Good news for coffee addicts who use the same cup to get their morning fix. There’s probably no need to wash out that stained mug, the one with more rings in it than the stump of an oak tree. It’s perfectly safe to refill your dirty cup — provided you’re not sharing it with others, according to infectious disease expert Jeffrey Starke. But he did warn that unless drink your coffee black, you may want to be careful how long you go before refills.
“If you leave cream or sugar in your mug over the weekend, that can certainly cause mold to grow,” Starke… Wash or give the mug a good rinse after a weekend, otherwise, drink up!
