pH test strips are an easy way of testing the pH values of a wide variety of liquids in the home, workplace or laboratory environments.

With the litmus paper being adhered to a plastic strip, maximum control and accuracy can be achieved when checking for pH values.

Simply…

  • Simply dip the coloured end of your pH Test Strip into the test solution.
  • Instantly compare the resulting color with the matching pH colour chart.

Measuring your urine:

  • Midstream*, quickly wet the paper or plastic with your urine flow.
  • Immediately compare the colour of the paper or the plastic strip to the pH colour chart.
  • Alternatively, collect midstream* urine into a glass or jar, litmus paper into the urine.
  • Immediately compare the colour of the paper or the plastic strip to the pH colour chart.
  • The pH of urine upon waking should be around 6.2 – 6.8 and move towards an alkaline state pH7 and above after eating.

* Midstream means to start your urination and when you feel you’re half finished, that’s when you dip your paper into the urine flow or when you collect a small sample for measuring.

Measuring your saliva:

  • Upon waking*, before you drink water, tea, coffee etc., have your paper or plastic strip ready and swallow whatever saliva is in your mouth.
  • Draw-up fresh saliva and then swallow. Do this two times.
  • When you draw up saliva for the third time, spit this saliva onto a spoon and quickly dip your litmus paper into the spit.
  • Immediately compare the colour of the paper or the plastic strip to the colour chart.
  • The same process applies if measuring your saliva throughout the day.

* The pH of saliva upon waking should be around 6.4 – 6.8 and move towards an alkaline state pH7 and above after eating.
