Hot water into cold water
I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?
I'm not much help since it's not something I've heard of either, but I too often like lukewarm water so I'm curious about other people's responses. Couldn't find anything about it online directly, but I checked out the wikipedia page about Japanese superstitions...and man, there's some weird stuff on there! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_superstitions2
I asked my Japanese boyfriend and he said he has never heard of it, but it could be a regional thing perhaps?1
Not sure about mixing but the hot water from your tap, is not good for you because of your boiler. When the pipe in the boiler is heated there is a chance that metal will leak into the water. https://denverwatertap.org/2017/12/13/psa-dont-drink-cook-hot-water-tap/1
The only thing I can think of is how pouring one into another in a GLASS might break it because of the sudden heat difference. Maybe that is it?1
