Method :  Wash your hands thoroughly and dry them. Then wear gloves. Collect some urine in a container. Be sure not to contaminate the sample. Take some baking soda in another container and pour a few millilitres of urine onto it. It is preferred that you perform this test using your first urine of the day as the urine may get diluted through the day as you drink water. This can alter or  skew the results of the test. Although the quantity of the baking soda or urine required to perform the test isn’t specified, it is recommended that you use equal parts of both the items.
