Lemons are another common household item that is acidic. Aspirin, or Acetylsalicylic Acid, is another common acid found in homes. The scientific name says it all. Apples, vinegar, and tomato juice are more common acids found in homes as are beer, grapefruits, and the chemicals contained inside of a car battery.
