Why could a litmus test paper have appeared in my suitcase?

It was tucked into the front pocket of our suitcase.

We've been away with both families and friends recently.

Is there any reason why you'd test wee? (Health wise)

Maybe they were checking luggage for drugs and it fell in? It's weird!

No idea - are they used for drug testing - perhaps by customs?

We've only been to Yorkshire, Northumbria and Cumbria.

Would a diabetic use it? (Type 1)

Ok - it must have been there for at least 20 months then!

No one in the family who's had to be fed with naso-gastric tubes outside of hospital?

When DS1 was in neo-natal the nurses used to check his naso-gastric tube was in the right place by using litmus paper.

I'd guess that your case has been drugs swabbed last time you went abroad

No mrsJ but thanks.

Well, it must have been when we went to America a couple of years ago confused

I'm going to use it to test the fish tank water and soil grin

Do you suspect them of drug use? grin

I am interested in the drugs thing. Are drugs overly alkaline or acidic? And why assume drugs or not say, the washing powder (which is alkaline)?

There's been some suspicious behaviour behind the filter for some time now.

Definitely something fishy going on....
