Title: How to colour an acidic liquid?
Post by: samthekiwi on 15/07/2021 03:02:15
Hello,

I am currently working on a liquid cleaning product and I want it to be blue. The liquid has a PH of 3-4 meaing it is mildy acidic. I have tried food colouring and it will change the colour to blue however overnight the acid in the liquid is then changing it back to white.

Can anyone recommend a colouring ink or dye that will work with an acidic liquid?

Cheers,
Sam
