    anything from a citric fruit contains citric acid(weak)

    vinegar (contains acetic acid CH3COOH- strong)

    baking soda (base, contains sodium hydrogen carbonate NaHCO3)

    lactic acid present is in dairy products

    carbonic acid found in soft drink (H2CO3-weak)

    ammonia (base-NH3) present in some cleaners check the labels

    some soap contains potassium hydroxide (base KOH)

    oven cleaners+drain cleaners contain sodium hydroxide (base-NaOH)

    any chlorine salt used to clean pools will form hydrogen chloride in water(acid)

    batteries contain sulfuric acid (H2SO4)

    Vinegar (Acetic Acid), the juice of any citrus fruit (Citric Acid), aspirin tablets(Salicylic acid, almost all carbonated beverages(Phosphoric acid and Carbonic acid), tartaric acid in mom's baking goods and anything which taste sower are all acids

    Bases like baking soda, (sodium bicarbonate), Washing Soda (Sodium Carbonate), household lye(Sodium hydroxide) for drain opener, most detergents(too many to list), Windex( Ammonium hydroxide), Ammonia cleaner solution(Ammonium Hydroxide), Tums and most anti-acids are Calcium Carbonate.

    Vinegar is a weak acid (acetic acid), but lime (calcium hydroxide) is a strong base. That's why you find in things like drain cleaner.
