    If it hasn't been said before: Please dispose of the bleach test separately from the other solutions. Dispose in a sink, flush with excess water, wait a while, then flush with more water before disposing of the other solutions. Bleach and other household chemicals can make dangerous gases when combined. It's unlikely the concentrations will be high enough to be an issue, but waste a few gallons of water just to be on the safe side.

    This is perfect for my intro lesson for Acids and Bases! You even do the experiment from the book, so that was very helpful! Thank you!
