and 7 is neutral or water PH. – So when you Pour the vinegar into one of
the soil samples and If the soil begins to bubble, it is alkaline, meaning the pH level
is above 7. – If there is no reaction, take your other
sample and pour in half cup water and then the baking soda. If the soil bubbles, it means the pH level

  2. hi, i used baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and it burned and killed all my seedlings . what did i do wrong ?

  3. using it for powdery mildew would the baking soda need to be washed off in morning to stop sun damage ive heard that most chemicals will collect in drops that after the drops evaporate it leaves spots of the chemical that is more likely to get sun burnt, or is the sun hitting the baking soda part of killing the fungus like with milk as shown on calikim

  4. I didn't understand point#10. Take 2 samples of different soil from the garden. Pour vinegar into one sample, if it bubbles, its alkaline. If it doesn't bubble, add water and baking soda – if soil bubbles, its acidic.
