What is Citric Acid?
Spicy World Citric Acid is your go-to ingredient for all your canning, cleaning and DIY cosmetic needs.
It is used to preserve and marinate meats, and flavor foods and beverages. For example, citric acid is used in wine to reduce low acidity and improve taste.
Citric acid is also used in cosmetic and personal care products as a preservative, and in cleaning products to remove hard water build up.
Citric Acid is the perfect DIY cleaning solution
While lemons smell great and are often recommended for cleaning various surfaces around the house, the “magic” cleaning ingredient in lemons is citric acid. The citric acid helps break apart stains so they can be flushed away, provides a gentle bleaching action, and acts as a bactericide and fungicide.
You can use a Citric Acid cleaning solution to:
– Clean kitchen surfaces, clean and deodorize a microwave, clean windows and mirrors, sanitize wooden cutting boards and kitchen utensils, descale coffee pots and tea kettles, remove stains from plastic containers and dishes, remove toilet bowl stains, remove soap scum, and many more applications!
Why use Citric Acid for canning?
An essential ingredient in home canning, citric acid is used to maintain a safe pH level in the canning of fruit and vegetables. Although many fruits contain a certain level of acid, it is not nearly enough to kill all harmful bacteria. Citric acid will prevent the formation of bacteria and spores that can cause food poisoning and keep your fruit looking fresh by preventing the occurrence of brown spots.
How can Citric Acid improve your cooking and baking?
Citric acid can be used at home to enhance the flavor of a dish or baked good, while also balancing acidity. Because it comes in powder form, it’s easy to sprinkle a small amount into a dish. Citric acid can be added to your favorite lemon dinner recipe such as lemon pasta or ceviche. It’s also a great addition to tomato soup, compound butters, margaritas and more. It will add a kick of acidity to any dish or drink without adding liquid, making it a great replacement for vinegar or lemon juice.
Baking with citric acid is a great way to enhance the flavor of lime or lemon desserts. It can be stirred into lemon curd, mixed into a glaze or incorporated into a frosting. You can also incorporate citric acid into the batter of baked goods, but it’s important to remember that it will cause a chemical reaction with baking powder or baking soda, causing further leavening.
DIY Bath Bombs
Adding a bath bomb to your bath can make it a truly luxurious experience. The fizzing can add relaxing, exfoliating, moisturizing, cleansing or therapeutic elements and create a delightful sensory experience. You can make DIY homemade bath bombs with the help of Spicy World Citric Acid and a few other ingredients from your kitchen.
Citric Acid, when combined with bicarbonate of soda, creates the signature ‘fizzing’ associated with bath bombs.
There are dozens of bath bomb recipe found online, and there’s no single recipe that is best for everyone. The combination of ingredients can depend not only on your personal preference, but also on your local climate. If you live in an area with higher humidity, you may need to adjust the ratio of ingredients in a bath bomb recipe. Your bath bomb’s salts can absorb moisture from the air and prematurely fizz or prevent your bomb from drying and holding its shape.
