    Allright, so i was reading some old threads about water damage from someones signature and i read that you can use a qtip and Vinegar Oil and rub it on the titmus paper and it will make it turn white again? does this actually work? and if it does can anyone explain it to me? i would think that the liquid would just set it off. also im not interested in trying to basically commit fraud. i dont even have an ipod at the momemt cuz mine was stolen so im waiting for the September 1st event to get all excited about the new one! im jsut interested if this actually works and if anyone can testify for it.

    It's because litmus paper reacts with acids and bases. Adding a drop of vinegar (being an acid) to the paper would reverse the reaction, and change back the color.

    And you don't need a science major to learn that. You should of learned that in chemistry class in middle or high school. (for me it's from middle)
