Citric acid is an acid compound that is naturally found in citrus fruits, but citric acid can also be derived from mold-based fermentation, such as Penicillium or Aspergillus niger of sugars. Citric acid kills bacteria, mildew and mold, and it's great for any sort of general disinfecting and natural cleaning. Citric acid is also effective at removing soap scum, calcium deposits, hard water stains, lime, and rust. Also, citric acid serves as a preservative in many natural cleaning solutions. Because lemon juice contains between five to eight percent citric acid, it is often used in green cleaning and natural cleaners. Citric acid can be used in a variety of homemade cleaning products and natural cleaners, such as auto cleaning products, metal cleaners, dishwasher cleaners, oven cleaners, all-purpose cleaners, tub and tile cleaners, soap-scum removers, bathroom cleaners, carpet cleaners, and dish soaps. Citric acid can also be used for laundry detergents, window cleaners, air fresheners, stain removers, and dishwasher rinse aids. You can find citric acid online, or check for it in the canning section of your grocery store. Citric acid is often located near the pectin and the other canning ingredients and materials. You can look for citric acid under the name sour salt in the kosher section or in the spice aisle of your local grocery store or local supermarket.
