the less contamination the better, so using common sense... the boiled water :P

I must admit, my opinions don't have years of growing behind them, however my friend (who has limited growing experience) has been using cold tap water to dunk her cakes and has had no problems whatever with contamination.

That said, it may well depend on the water supply you're using and the piping inside your home.

And as Michael said, boiling the water can only help.

Depends on how paranoid you are :smile:  My friend has had no problems with tap.

actually it depends on where you live for the most part. In some places its safe to drink.. in others id be skeptical about using it to wash my car. Usually, it's the chemicals in the water that's the problem and boiling wont help that. You can always use purified spring water or something.. but Id say thats over doing it. I've always used distilled for most everything, the tap water leaves a residue when boiled.. so i know its not the best to be using.

Use cold tap water diluted with bleach 200:1. You're cakes will be fine and the bleach will kill any unseen surface contamination.

Just by a gallon of distilled for a dollar and use it.
