Here’s one easy travel tip that’ll prevent sickness while searching for the best place to retire cheap. If you’re eating at a restaurant that might have questionable cleaning habits, this tip will help you out. I learned in Hong Kong (which already has comparitvely clean restaurants ) that there’s 1 simple custom designed for maximum cleanliness. This custom is going to increase your health and keep you happy and safe while looking for that cheap place to retire.

Wash your utensils in tea! Many restaurants will provide a large oversized bowl which is used for this express purpose.

The first pot of tea is traditionally designated for washing not drinking, as the first batch of fresh tea isn’t the best. Historically this custom was born because roadside restaurants would get dusty utensils from traffic and now it’s a super handy for getting rid of excess bleach or washing detergent that might be left over on your plate, utensils or cups. Wash things in tea! How simple and charming, and don’t worry you won’t be insulting the restaurant if you do.
