Directions for use:
To use this product simply tear off a small strip (50mm - 2½") of pH paper and dip into test solution. Compare the instantaneous colour change with the matching pH colour chart.
Measuring your urine:
Midstream*, quickly wet the paper with your urine flow. Immediately compare the colour of the paper 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 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 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 to the colour chart. The same process applies if measuring 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Approximately how many tests per roll is there?
There is approximately 100 tests per roll depending on the length of paper you tear off each time. For instance, if you used a strip of paper at 25mm or 1 inch, you'll get close to 180 tests!
Can I use my pH Litmus Test Paper to measure the pH of water?
No. The reagent used in the pH Litmus Paper is designed for buffered solutions only.
What is a buffered solution?
A buffered solution is a solution with adequate dissolved solids to resist pH changes. For example, urine and saliva are considered buffered in their natural state. However, rain water, tap water etc. are considered to be dilute, weakly buffered solutions.
