So what transpires with the cabbage? This fun TikTok video with a great sense of humor from @nilered gives us the answer.


The contrasting reactions with different pH levels are what are most interesting and unexpected. There are lots of ways to do it yourself but here are a few examples of what you can use for the different pH levels:

VinegarTap waterFiltered waterWater with saltWater with baking sodaWater with bleachIf you’re near any natural body of water (a pond, a river, a lake, etc.) try using some water from that

You can use these examples and also any other sample of a substance with water that changes its pH level. We hope you enjoy the video and conducting the experiment yourself if you are so inclined. We’ll continue to publish other experiments so keep an eye on these pages for more. Recommended for you
