Answer: Acidic treatments are used to neutralize the acid. This can be done by using base or combination of base and liquid carrier. The process of neutralization will result in salts and water. Potassium hydroxide is commonly used base for this purpose. However this process also has a flip side. The water that is produced is removed through the filter. But the salts remain trapped inside which can cause problems.
