What is pH? Can a cleaning formula's pH level damage material?
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of how acidic or basic (alkaline) a solution is. Water based solutions range from a pH of zero to a pH of 14. The mid-point of the pH scale, 7.0, is considered neutral. Pure water is neutral. A pH less than 7 is said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. WHIP-IT® Concentrate pH is 11, Professional Strength pH is 9 and Super Strength pH is 8. Adding water will only slightly reduce the pH level in WHIP-IT®. Whip-It® stain remover neutralizes acidic based stains. Examples include baby formula, food stuffs, grease, blood, wine and urine. Alkaline cleaners are effective in removing dye or pigment stains, however, dye loss or color bleeding may occur. Always spot test in an inconspicuous area for colorfastness.
