Do you remember learning about water pH levels in science class? Maybe you placed a piece of litmus paper in various liquids to check their level? If not, here’s a quick refresher.
The pH scale is used in chemistry to describe how acidic or basic an aqueous solution is. Acidic solutions have a lower pH value, while basic (or alkaline) solutions have higher values. The pH of water can range from 1 to 14, with the natural pH of water being approximately 7.
