Has anyone tired collected the gas from these bubbles and tried running the Hydrogen pop test on them?

But wouldn’t the bubbles also be sodium hydroxide, AKA lye? I can see the bubbles from the salt cell not being a big deal when they stay in the water at warmer temps... but when they bubble to the surface and pop? I think I’ll stick to not running it when the water is 50 degrees..

Its hydrogen gas:
2 NaCl(aq) + 2 H2O(l)
---->
2 Na+(aq) + 2 OH-(aq) + H2(g) + Cl2(g)
