Why does hot water come out of the faucet looking white and or creamy sometimes?
theres probably something wrong with your pipes or boiler
since mine doesn’t do that , unless its refraction from the steam or something ,
Naah, nothing wrong with your pipes. I’ve seen that myself many times. If you pour the hot, milky water into a glass, you’ll see it will quickly turn clear. The milkyness looks like tiny steam bubbles to me. Incidentally, installing an aerator on your faucet will mask the effect.

Hope that helps. I also know that Dave Feldman (sorry for the faux pas!) answered this in one of his Imponderables books. I don’t know which one, though.

Handy gets warned of banning for posting stuff like this. You better watch out.
The reason hot water looks “cloudy” sometimes is due to disolved air. Take a glass and fill it with this water. Now leave it on the counter and you will see the air slowly go to the top and the water become crystal clear. That white stuff ain’t gonna poison you.
