so im from the uk and my water started running yellow.
`ive checked a bunch of sites and it says its usually magnesium dislodged from maintance outside (which is happening)
I really fucking desperately need to clean myself for tomorrow.
All the sites say not to use laundry or drink the water but nothing about bathing.
Is it okay to bathe in this yellow water?

I kinda fancy the challenge, im making this just to work out if its going to turn me blind and make my skin fall of or not
>>
why not just heat up some bottled water on your stove
>>
>UK
No
You guys have that retard-level separated hot-water cold-water system and the most common reason for this to happen in your water systems is basically a bunch of built up heavy metals.
So unless you feel like soaking yourself in a bunch of lead, go shower at the gym.
>>
I feel like if it's not good for laundry then bathing would be worse. Maybe water a plant with it to see what happens.
>>
I'd shower in it. I wouldn't drink it though. :-)

It could stain the laundry if it soaks with white fabric. But you aren't soaking in it if you shower.

>>16863083
its magnesium and iron thats not harmful right to skin and eyeballs right?
>>16863091
ive no shower head im actually having to bathe in it
>>16863087
right anon you've convinced me, if I die its all your fault, wish me luck
>>
How about getting humid wipes and some dry shampoo instead? You'll be sufficiently clean and not taking life risks.
>>
What if there really lying and it's really has a yellow tinge because of a low concentration of piss.
You never know. Maybe someone in the neighborhood has piss jugs and this is the result.
>>
Shouldn't you run it for 10-20 minutes first?

I mean, how many metals could there actually be?
>>
>>16863181
This.

Had it in our area, run taps for a few minutes till it clears. Then run each individual tap to clear the pipes in your home.
>>
>>16863020
Don't bathe in it
>>
If you guys saw what the insides of the pipes look like you'd never drink or shower again.
