  • Citric Acid

    $4.00$18.00 inc GST

    The highest concentration of naturally occurring citric acid is found in lemons & limes, but is also present in other citrus fruits and strawberries. It is described as a weak organic acid and is a natural preservative found in living cells, both animal and plant.

    Apparently, up to 100 years ago, bulk supplies of Citric Acid were still being produced from natural sources. Nowadays it is near impossible to find a natural supply in commercial quantities. We spent months searching the globe for a supplier and found none! Natural has been replaced with man-made, and has been for many decades. So, with no other option we too had to settle for a man-made Citric Acid. Of course, we ensured we sourced the very best available – our Citric Acid is Food Grade and USP & BP Grade, so you can be sure you are buying the very best!

    Citric Acid Uses

    Citric Acid has a multitude of uses

    • Food Enhancer & Preservative – Citric Acid enhances flavour and preserves foods. Citric Acid is used in some beverages, conserves, jelly, frozen and canned foods. Citric Acid also breaks down proteins found in meats and makes meat tender – great for marination.
    • 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.
    • Cosmetic formulations – Citric Acid is often present in hair care products, for example, as an anti-dandruff agent in shampoos.
      Citric Acid can be found in commercial facial cream and lotions where it acts as an antioxidant, revitalising skin and balancing pH levels. Rich in Vitamin C and a powerful antioxidant, it enhances the production of collagen, potentially restoring both skin firmness and elasticity. It is also a proven skin exfoliator, removing dead skin cells.
    • 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.
    • As a clothes softener – If you usually use a water softener or are in an area with hard water due to mineralisation (high in calcium and magnesium), then Citric Acid can be added to the laundry rinse in place of a commercial water softener. The amount to use will vary from situation to situation. If you are in an area with hard water more will be needed. Also, more is needed for larger washes. A bit of experimentation is needed. Possibly start with adding a tablespoon and increase the quantity if need be.
    • 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!
    • As a de-scaler – Use to remove mineral scale from washing machines, dishwashers, shower heads, even coffee makers. To descale the washing machine, add a couple of scoops to hot water, no clothes, and run a full cycle. With the dishwasher, add it to your detergent and be amazed at the sparkle and shine of dishes and cutlery.

    How to use Sodium Bicarbonate

    Here are just some of the ways:

    Enjoy a refreshing and relaxing Bicarb bath

    Sodium Bicarb (baking soda) soothes, relaxes, softens skin and even deodorises. For a pampering and revitalizing bath soak or for relieving tension after a hard day, dissolving 2 cups of Sodium Bicarbonate and soaking for 15 minutes can make you feel so refreshed!

    For natural wellbeing

    Bicarb can be used as a deodorant, as relief from itchy skin and sunburn, for splinter removal, as a toothpaste and tooth whitener, and more.

    In the laundry

    Sodium Bicarb added to the rinse cycle of your wash boosts the strength of laundry detergents, making your clothes cleaner, brighter and fresher.

    As a natural cleaner

    Sodium Bicarb is a mild abrasive, perfect for removing stains from your sink, fridge, stove top, bench tops, dishwasher, bathroom tiles, bathtub and shower recess, and more.

    As a deodoriser

    Sodium Bicarb actually eliminates odours rather than covering them up. Use it to eliminate odours from smelly shoes (sprinkle Bicarb inside shoes in evening and shake it out in the morning), sprinkle on your carpet before vacuuming to eliminate food and pet odours and any stale smell. Use it in your bin, fridge and pantry to keep them smelling fresh. Run your dishwasher and washing machine through a cycle with Bicarb instead of detergent to give them a great clean and reduce odours.

    Unclog drains

    Pour 4 tablespoons of Bicarb down your drains and flush with hot water. Do this weekly to keep them free-flowing.

    In the kitchen!

    Cooking: naturally, since our Bicarb of Soda is Food Grade, it can be used for any cooking application. Use it confidently in baking breads, scones, cakes, or any recipe that requires Baking Soda.

    Sodium Bicarb, so simple and so versatile!
