Well potassium reduces water to give an alkaline solution....

Explanation:

And we can represent this by the stoichiometric equation...

$K \left(s\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right) \rightarrow K O H \left(a q\right) + \frac{1}{2} {H}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$

Potassium metal is much more reactive than sodium...and this reaction would not normally be performed in a teaching laboratory.
