Is it safe to drink out of a cup that's had mold in it?

If you neglect your favourite cup like that then what on earth does your least favourite cup look like?

I've heard / seen some things at work and the people there still seem to be alive and kicking....

* filling the kettle with hot water
* eating a half tin of beans left overnight in the kitchen window with tissue stuffed at the top
* rinsing out a cup of soup and making tea in the same cup with the remains of the soup still inside
* rinsing dirty cutlery that others have left in the sink and thinking it's clean to use, etc

...the list is so endless and disgusting!

You're in more danger from the bleach that you used to clean the cup with than from the mould.

That's true. Regular dish-soap and HOT water would have been more than enough to clean the cup.

It will be fine.

you could take a dump in a cup, and wash it, and it would be fine to use
oh dear, I've just been reminded of a certain video... with two girls...
Now I feel ill...

I'd much rather buy a new cup for a couple of quid than drink out of anything that has mould or been washed with bleach. Favourite cup or not, it's gotta go - your health surely comes first!

Your poor favourite cup.

If I reached into the breadbin and pulled out a green slice of Hovis I wouldn't get a new hand because I'd had something mouldy in it - a quick wash and it'd be back in the breadbin for a slice of Warburtons. So I think it's probably okay just to wash the cup. And cups are much more washable than hands, being all glazed and dishwasher safe and all that.

I once drank from a cup that had mould in it and I turned green like the incredible hulk and went round beating up bad guys. Cost me a bloody fortune in blouses and slacks. True.

I've often picked the green bits out of a slice of bread before toasting it. I've never got sick from it yet.
same here. You'll be fine OP. My plates have gone mouldy before and I've just washed them and ate off them straight after and I've felt OK.
