mother of two Kat Kamalani shared why in an online TikTok video.

“You should never consume these products from an airplane,” she said.

Kat actually did say that she doesn’t recommend consuming any liquids that aren’t sealed like they come in cans or bottles.

“The reason is because those tanks are never cleaned,” she said.

“They’re disgusting.”

Kat explains that flight attendants rarely drink hot drinks on planes.

“They come from the same water tank, so when you drink that coffee and tea, it also comes from the same water source,” she said.

“That’s disgusting.”

And there is one more questionable fact about these tanks.

“They’re near the restroom,” says Kat.


Now, while it’s perfectly possible for an adult to survive an eight-hour flight without a hot beverage, you might be wondering what parents should do with their infant’s milk?

Kat says there’s a way around it.

“Tips for parents: never ask for hot water and put it in your baby’s bottle,” she says.

“Ask for a water bottle on the side and hot water in a cup, then make your child a pitcher with bottled water and put it in the cup and heat it up.”

Kat’s video has garnered more than 5.2 million views and people were shocked by her revelation.

One user said: “You guys should clean them up. Seriously, that’s messed up.”
