# Do all double displacement reactions lead to precipitates?

I know that most of the double displacement reactions form some kind of precipitates as their products. But do all of the double displacement reactions form precipitates? I have searched on this site as well as on Google, I've found answers, but they are not clarifying my doubts. Maybe I need a simpler explanation.

No, recall the definition of a precipitate "insoluble ionic compound". Take this reaction into consideration $$\ce{ NaOH~(s) + HCl~(l) <=> H2O~(l) + NaCl~(aq)}$$ none of the products are insoluble. You'll learn more when you go over gas evolution reactions.
