Default HCl is an acid

HCl is an acid, hydrochloric acid.....and when it is concentrated, it is nasty stuff. I am surprised that the teacher wouldn't give a small amount a very dilute solution in water. The best alternative is simply vinnegar, which is 5% acetic acid in water. It will do the same thing.
