Been doing it for years without an issue. Same goes for eating food. You're fine.

Same for me 10 years …., reminds me the "look" my that time GF gave me when I let her cook with 7/11 bottle water (as I came as a newbie …) and later I realized how stupid I acted as over cautious farang

.

Don't drink it I would still say , but cooking or pasting safe enough , you can always use Listerine after if you doubt still ...

My Thai wife won't use this water for cooking. I wash my toothbrush with it but use mouthwash to rinse my mouth.

and do restaurants use filtered water for cooking?

1: Yes, if it's looks clear.

2: No, but it'll be boiled during cooking.

Looks have nothing so do with the quality and safety of the water.  Adequate filtration is necessary, regardless of how clear it may appear. Same with pools.  They can look clear and clean when they are not safe to swim in.

Correct because as everyone knows its very easy to see harmful bacteria..................duh! 

You should not drink it, just rinse your mouth with it to get rid of the unknown chemicals they put in the toothpaste.

..I've been brushing my teeth with tap water for 12 years now.. no problems.. Most if not all restaurants/food stalls use tap water in their cooking.. Cooking kills any bugs.. the pcbs and chemical residues may get you in the end..
