Uses of Acids and Bases:

Acid-base reactions are among the most common chemical reactions that happen daily in everyday life. For instance, some cleaning products are acidic, while other cleaning products are basic. The degree of acidity and basicity differ from one substance to another, with some substances being either a powerful acid or a powerful base. In contrast, some substances are weak acids or weak bases.
