The cabbage juice will turn different shades of red when mixed with acids, and different shades of blue when mixed with bases. First you need to prepare your cabbage juice: Grate some red cabbage into a medium-sized bowl. Cover the cabbage with cold water and let it sit for 45 minutes. Strain the juice into a plastic container. Pour an equal amount of cabbage juice into each plastic cup. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to all but one of your cups.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
