All acids have hydrogen in the beginning of their chemical formula. For example, H2SO4, HCl, and HNO3.

So, basically any substance that does not start with an H, is not an acid.

Examples of substances that are not acids are: soap, baking soda, windex, salt

(also, acids are corrosive, so any substance that doesn't burn your skin is not an acid)
