    because i use the same tea bag more than once???

    basically ive switched to green tea and like it really week..... so there for i can get 3 or 4 mugs out of one tea bag (because i only have it really week..... literally, i take the bag out as soon as ive poured the water!!!)

    because of this, i put the tea bag in a dish and leave it on the side for the rest of the day..... i throw it away in the evening and start a new one each day.

    basically everyday when my boyfriend gets home from work he complains about my tea bag, telling me im disgusting!!!!!...... am i really that gross?????

    No... it seems perfectly sensible to me, saves money as well.
    theres not much point using a new one each time if you don't get full use out of it.

    although it might be quite a good idea to keep it covered, prevent bacteria n such...

    Nah it's not gross. I do that at home, but not at uni because i don't want to annoy my housemates.

    If all my housemates were to evaporate today I would do the same as you though.

    Take a glass of water. Leave it out in your kitchen, uncovered, for 24 hours. Then drink it. You decide whether it's gross or not.

    Ok. So, do what I suggested you do and you can decide for yourself whether leaving out a glass of water for 10 hours is disgusting or not.
