A lombard, a natural indicator.

To make our experiment we need:
-A lombard.
-Some acids.
-Some bases.
-a spoon.

An indicator is a substance that has the distinction of getting a different colour by it's contact with an acid or a base. We can made our home-made-indicator.

First, boil the lombard at home, we collect the boiled water into a glass, Filter it through a strainer and we have our liquid indicator.

To see how the colour changes we put in a glass the subtance that we want to study and add a spoonful of the liquid indicator.

If the substance is acidic. It turns red when you add the liquid indicator and, it is basic, it turns green or blue.
