    Hello Delta Potassium!

    Litmus red paper retains its color when the solution in which it is soaked is either neutral or acidic. Litmus blue paper turns red when the solution in which it is soaked is acidic.

    In this case, the solution must be acidic!

    Hope this answers your question! Do not hesitate to rewrite us!

    Éveline 😊
