Citric acid is a useful addition to every eco-friendly home, and this generous 750g bag of citric acid powder should keep you going for some time!


Citric acid is a weak natural acid that is great for:

  • descaling kettles, coffee machines, shower heads, etc
  • removing limescale from your washing machine
  • cleaning toilet bowls
  • getting rid of stains and mildew
  • removing rust
  • cleaning windows


We also find that citric acid works well as a replacement for white vinegar in general household cleaning applications, which is useful if you want to avoid that distinctive vinegar smell!


As this citric acid powder is food grade it is also safe to use in food preparation and preservation, for example when making elderflower champagne, fruit cordials, jams, jellies, sweets, sherbet and even soft cheeses.
