Is it safe to eat from dishes washed in cold or tepid water?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?

I don't have any symptoms of anything, but we lost our hot water, and I want to be sure we can eat safely from dishes washed in cold water.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

We're fairly healthy, so I don't think there's anything else. We're both in our early sixties.

Hi I am dr. Iqtidar an expert on justanswer.com. As long as you use some detergent to clean your dishes it should be perfectly fine even if cold water. If greasy or raw meat has been used then you will need more detergent. For extra peace of mind if your able to boil some water in a kettle and safely use it then you may try that. I feel that with washing up detergent your dishes will be clean regardless of temperature of the water. Hope this answer helps

Regards,

Dr. Iqtidar.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
