Properties of bases:

● They generally taste bitter.
● Turn moist red litmus blue.
● Conduct electricity.
● Feel slippery.

Bases feel slippery because they dissolve the fatty acids and oils from the human skin and this reduces the friction between the fingers as we rub them together.

Yes. Please accept it. :)) Bye.
Bases are bitter tasting, slippery to the touch, caustic, electrolytic, and contain the OH- ion. They react readily with acids to produce water and a salt.Strong bases feel slippery because they react with lipids in your skin, essentially turning the fats into soap. Touching strong bases can cause serious chemical burns.
