Customer Ratings & Reviews

Citric Acid is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what I needed I bought this just to try in my dishwasher to see if it would get that white film off my glasses. It may have helped but I'm not going to keep it up. I bought this small size just as a trial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I'm really happy to make my own healthy products at home. Works excellent in my homemade bodywash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for homemade cleaning products My awareness of harmful chemicals in household cleaning products has brought me to research online on how to make my own! One ingredient is Citric Acid which isn't easy to find. Here it is, I use it in my homemade dishwasher soap, it works great and no harmful ingredients. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works great for cleansing hair Whether it's a waxy, oily buildup or pollution buildup that yellows light-colored hair, all you need is 1/2 tsp citric acid mixed with your shampoo, and the buildup is gone! 10 drops of tea tree added for waxy/oily hair takes it out the first time. pollution-stained hair takes several cleanses. Just put mixture into hair, wait 5-10 minutes in steamy shower, and rinse. It doesn't dry out your hair - you probably wont need the usual dose of conditioner. Hair feels so soft!
