A 1kg bag of citric acid by La Droguerie Eco.

Citric acid is a really useful household product which has a wide range of uses.  It can be used in DIY cleaning recipes, in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, in home cooking recipes, as a common food additive to acidify fizzy drinks and a ph regulator.

This food grade citric acid is great at tackling limescale and can be an alternative natural cleaner to some smellier ones like vinegar. It’s also an excellent anti-oxidant and a useful preservative and can be used in many cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The wide range of uses means it makes a great eco-friendly addition to the household.

Citric acid is one of the most widespread acids in the plant world. It can be found in almost all fruits, woods, funguses and even in tobacco. Lemon juice is composed of citric acid, between 5% and 7%. It plays a key role for the metabolism of all living organisms.

This citric acid is produced and packaged (in a plastic free kraft paper bag) in Western Europe so it has a smaller carbon footprint than many alternatives and is also completely biodegradable too.

WHY I LOVE THIS:

  • Food grade (E330)
  • Plastic free kraft bag packaging (compostable)
  • Vegan and cruelty free
  • Made and packaged in Western Europe
  • Low carbon footprint
  • This brand offsets 100% of its CO2 emissions

How to use:  

With a search online you can easily find many natural DIY & food recipes which use citric acid as follows (please research the cleaning recipes thoroughly as we cannot take responsibility for any damage caused):

  • Descaling stainless steel, washing machines, kettles, coffee machines & taps/shower heads
  • Cleaning stains off cups & vases
  • Removing moss from outdoor surfaces
  • Removing rust
  • Cleaning your toilet & floors
  • Bathroom cleaning spray
  • Citric acid can also be used in Elderflower cordial & fizzy drinks

Please note that although it is a great cleaning product for many surfaces, citric acid should not be used on brass items (including taps & ornaments), natural stone surfaces (including floors), aluminium, marble surfaces (including counter tops) or any other surfaces sensitive to acids.
