comment Boiled water left in a Teflon pot
@ChrisSteinbach There is no such thing as an organism that can withstand 212 degrees (Except of the bottom of the sea floor, and if those are coming out of your tap, everyone who's pulling off that water source is quite dead.) Any toxins that have been introduced would also have to be from the source (as long as you are keeping the pot covered to prevent introing them yourself) and thus the first boiling didn't get rid of them either. However, if you leave the pot UNCOVERED on the stove, who knows what could be in there, and you should start over with new water.
