Alkalines can cause pH indicators, like thymol blue, to turn shades of blue and green.

Bases aee solutions rich in Hydroxide ions (OH-). They will have a pH above 7. When they come in contact with lipids, they soap, making them good oven cleaners.

Bases[edit]

Bases are solutions rich in Hydroxide ions that are not soluble in water.

Alkalines[edit]
