Do a DIY Soil pH Test at Home
This simple soil pH test only requires a few simple supplies - most of which you probably have right at home! In minutes, you can find out whether your soil is alkaline or acidic.
Scoop up a small amount of soil from your garden.
Then, add enough distilled water to the soil to make it into a loose mud.
Pour a bit of vinegar into the bowl. If it fizzes, your soil is alkaline!
Double-check your results by emptying the bowl and starting once more.
Again, scoop some soil into the bowl.
Add the water to create a loose mud.
Sprinkle baking soda into the mixture. If it fizzes, your soil is acidic!
