Blants Citric Acid is Food Grade and USP & BP Grade.
Citric Acid has a multitude of uses:
- Bath Bombs – Bath bombs are a fun way to mineralise your body. A Bath Bomb would not be a Bath Bomb without Citric Acid. The three main ingredients of Bath Bombs are Citric Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate and Epsom Salt. When this combination is blended and added to hot water, the carbon dioxide in the Bicarb Soda reacts with the Citric Acid resulting in a wonderful bubbling, fizzing, effervescent sensation as you soak
- Improved Cleaning – If you live in an area with hard water, then detergents cannot soap and sud properly. The minerals in hard water (usually calcium and magnesium) prevent detergent from soaping up and sudsing properly. Citric Acid binds those minerals, resulting in water which is now soft, allowing detergents to do their job. Often, when the water is soft less detergent is needed.
- Bathroom & Kitchen – Citric Acid is very effective when it comes to cleaning bathrooms. A solution of 10 parts water to 1 part Citric Acid to clean and disinfect the bathroom vanity, basin, shower recess and toilet. Less dilution for difficult areas. For a very grotty toilet add a cup of Citric Acid to the toilet bowl, let it sit over-night, give it a brush in the morning and be amazed at the result. To clean and disinfect kitchen benchtops, cupboards, and stove tops, use a similar solution of 10:1 as with bathrooms. If need be, reduce the dilution for difficult areas.
- Windows – to clean dirty windows, blend a tablespoon of Citric Acid with a litre of water. Pour into a spray bottle, spray, wipe and hey presto!
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
