How to perform a saliva pH test?

Follow the steps below to perform a saliva pH test:

  1. Wash and dry your hands.
  2. Remove a strip from the pouch and immediately re-seal the pouch.
  3. Obtain saliva sample: Spit saliva onto a clean container. Non-bubble saliva works best.
  4. Place a drop of your saliva on the test pads (with a dropper) or dip the test strip into the saliva container for about 3 seconds, making sure that both pads on the strip are fully covered with saliva.
  5. Remove excess saliva by blotting the side of the strip on a paper towel. Start timing and wait for 30 seconds.
  6. Compare the color of the test pads to the corresponding row of color blocks on the color key to find the closest match. Read the results carefully at 30 seconds in a good light. The color changes that appear after one minute are of no diagnostic significance.
