Citric acid is a natural preservative that exists in many different fruits, vegetables and other products. It can also serve as a ph adjuster, which makes it a great ingredient for personal care products, food coloring, and many other solutions.
Many products in the food and beverage industry also use citric acid to add to a sour taste. It is a common ingredient that chefs will use in many dishes, including an emulsifier for ice creams, ripening agents for mozzarella cheese, and much more. Home brewers have also been buying bulk citric acid for many years to modify their water when making beer or other beverages.
Of course, citric acid is also used outside the food and personal care industries. It is actually a common additive for concrete to slow settling time, making it easier to work with and manipulate before it sets up.

I bought Citric Acid originally so I could add bath bombs to my bath and body products repertoire. I had no idea it had so many other wonderful uses. I saw a homemade recipe for dishwasher detergent using Citric Acid so I googled it trying to find it again after receiving my order. What I found was an article by a name brand dishwasher company recommending it's use as a descaler. I used it in my dishwasher (filled the detergent and rinse cups) and ran a normal cycle, which I had to do four times to get all the buildup of (we have extremely hard water, even with our water softener. Our dishwasher had been making a lot of noise and my husband had told me we should have someone come out to take a look. I am so glad I tried the citric acid first because apparently that was the problem. I then used it to descale my Keurig which I was having to clean with vinegar about once a week because it would literally stop working unless I did. Now I am moving on to our humidifier and have been thinking about going to my parents to descale their dishwashers while they are on vacation.. I love it, I think I am addicted to Citric Acid and may have a descaling addiction. Forget bath bombs!

I found this 50 pound bag to be the most economical way to purchase. Since we use it in various ways to battle hard water, I prefer to have a quantity on hand. The 50 pounder comes double bagged; the outer bag being a tough paper, like a feed sack, and the inner one is a fairly strong clear plastic. I purchased a 5 gallon bucket with lid to store it, but unfortunately it overfilled my new bucket. The only problem I had was the product was "clumpy", which made it difficult to pour; I assume this is from humidity. If I had to do over, I would have dropped the entire bag on concrete repeatedly before tearing open the outer wrapper to break up the big chunks. Shipping was fast, as was response to my questions.

I use citric acid for everything: it rinses dishes, cleans rust off metal, makes my hair shiny and soft after I wash it in baking soda, it gets that slimy feeling out of the dog dishes (their saliva actually has harmful pathogens so I like getting them really clean), gets rust out of the sink drain...I add a little to the laundry. It sanitizes my cutting board without using bleach. The price is great because I use a lot.

Great price, and quick shipping! I'm excited to get this to add to the dishwasher cleaning. I also make a good punch "Lemon Water" with it.

I use citric acid for homemade bath bombs that I sell for my business. Excellent price, which means higher profit!

I tried this to use with the mms protocol, Since the pre-mixed solutions were too expensive, and the packets of citric acid were hard to dissolve entirely, I tried your product, and wow! For those who are familiar with Jim Humble's MMS, it's much more cost-efficient to purchase the raw materials and mix them yourself, than to buy the pre-packaged product. And this citric acid is the best quality as well as best priced product I've found anywhere! I'm going to purchase more and learn what all else I can do with it!

I use citric acid in decongestant shower fizzies. They're a must have during the winter!
Mix well 1 part citric acid, 2 parts baking soda. I use a dust mask while using citric acid just because it tickles my throat if I don't.
Color with small amount of pigment if desired
Add a small amount (about 2% total weight) of essential oils of menthol, spearmint, & wintergreen
Spritz and mix with witch hazel until mixture sticks together well.
Fill small soap molds with mixture, compacting firmly
Let harden for about 5-10 minutes, and tap out of mold
Let air dry a few hours or overnight
Store in air tight container
To use: place on floor of shower in the stream of water
