To use as a cleaning product
Citric acid can be used as a natural cleaning product to descale surfaces. It is a powerful product that can safely kill bacteria and remove mould or limescale particularly in kitchens and bathrooms in the home. It is considered to be an eco-friendly or ‘green’ way of cleaning as it is a completely natural product. Simply mix with water before using. If cleaning the toilet, pour a tablespoon into the water and leave it for 15-20 minutes before flushing. It can be used in dishwashers too, add to the dishwasher and put it on a hot cycle - this will remove and rinse away any build up. As it is natural, it can be used to descale and clean baby bottles by gently removing build up without any chemicals - it is completely safe and gentle.
Another way of being creative with citric acid is to create your own homemade bath bombs - you can find ways of doing this easily online.
To use in cooking
Citric acid can also be used in various cooking recipes where a sour taste is required, such as sweet and sour sticky tofu for a healthy take on your favourite takeaway. It is often used in cooking as it doesn’t disturb the flavours of other key ingredients in the way that apple cider vinegar or lemon might.
