word of warning to anyone whose never worked with citric acid before: STAND BACK, POUR SLOWLY, and DO NOT INHALE while pouring as this type of product creates a "dust cloud". Inhaling citric acid, no matter what brand, can and will result in very irritated airways.
I saw this citric acid in a review of some other product that the reviewer said did not work. The reviewer said to skip the other product and try this. She called it a "miracle cleaner". OK, I was up for a miracle at this point. I figured it was worth a try. If it didn't work I could always use it to make sourdough bread. It's other name is "sour salt" when used in cooking.
I diluted the powder 2 TB per 4 cups warm water as suggested. I poured it into a clean spray bottle. I sprayed the shower door. The white scale melted before my eyes. And I mean MELTED off the door. I rinsed the door with a 2 liter spray bottle (Hudson brand sold on Amazon) and the door was like new! No scrubbing, no nothing. How could this product have escaped my notice all these years?
I googled citric acid and saw the many other uses for this product from cleaning the coffee pot, to cleaning tile and windows. The dirty grout in my kitchen...clean! The apple slices got soaked in a light solution before dehydrating.(Cheaper than lemon juice). Anything vinegar or lemon juice can do, this can do better. Enough said.
This is exactly the same as "sour salt" in the small container. I bought this because I am never going to get a decent sourdough starter going. I've tried for several years: the hundreds of different techniques on hundreds of bread websites, the "Alaska dehydrated starter" that I ordered all the way from Utah, the "fresh starter" from some folks that said it was over 100 years old and used on the Oregon Trail no less.
Well, it was time for plan Z (the cheaters way). Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per dough recipe (about 3 cups flour) and add an extra tablespoon of yeast and you've got sourdough bread! The first time I used it, I didn't add extra yeast. I guess this salt inhibits yeast action. (same thing happened when I tried to make sourdough bread by adding vinegar.)
The second time I used it to make rye bread, I added the extra yeast and it turned out perfectly. I have also used it for sweet and sour sauce. Vinegar is still my other sour ingredient in the sauce, but this adds a real kick. Lots of my grandma's "old country Russia" recipies use this sour salt. Cabbage and meatball recipe and many soups. Look on line for great "old country" recipies.
A citric acid solution, at the same normality, is more acidic than vinegar which makes it a more effective descaler. It can also be stored more compactly than a bottle of vinegar and is readily made into solution when needed. For use as a kettle descaler, I added 4 tsp (about 19 grams, 0.1 mole) to 1 liter of water, boiled it in the kettle and let it sit for 15 minutes. It completely dissolved a year's worth of mineral deposits. I then soaked the aerator of my kitchen faucet (which was partially blocked) in a small quantity of this hot acidic solution. It cleared it up very effectively, something which repeated overnight soakings in vinegar had failed to do. Aside from the effectiveness, another advantage is that, unlike vinegar, it has no odor and the kettle is more easily rinsed free of the acid after descaling. Needless to say, it is much more cost effective than buying a dedicated descaler, which is most likely citric acid, but with some snazzy brand name so they can charge a hefty premium for it.
It works very well as a dishwasher cleaner. An advantage it has versus vinegar for this application is that you can simply put a quantity (I use 2 tbsp) in the dispenser and start the wash. It will automatically get used during the main wash cycle which is when the dispenser door opens. Being the longest cycle of the wash, it is the most effective way of using a cleaner. To get the same effect with vinegar, you have to start the dishwasher, wait for the pre-wash cycle to complete, open the door and pour in the vinegar. This works, but is obviously less convenient.
This particular product itself is well packaged. I like the fact that it is resealable, which means I do not have to find a separate container for it. The granules flowed freely with minimal clumping. The two pound bag is a good size for my needs and should last me more than a year. Recommended.

I had brown lime build up in my toilet, I could not figure out what it was for the life of me. Got different brushes, tried the vinegar soak, vinegar and baking soda, nothing worked.
So I decided to try citric acid. Shut off the valve, flushed and held the flush, then emptied as much as I could with an old container I had lying around, I poured some citric acid, probably 1/2C but I just poured til it looked right, and I let it sit. I checked in every 30 minutes. I set a timer for 3 hours but I didn't even have to make it to 3 hours! Every 30 minutes, the stuff would just flake off!! I would sometimes get my brush and brush the bottom of the bowl (where the pipe is?) and try to get the citric acid water mix into the pipes. After 2.5 hours, everything was GONE. It was amazing!! No more disgusting unsightly toilet bowl. I will be doing this every now and then when I notice a build up but I got a new toilet brush too (ends up I guess I didn't really need it though..)
You could potentially just use the citric acid mix and leave it for a few hours and flush and not need to brush since it just comes right off. I would say, don't leave it all night because it is still acid.
Just make sure you flush well with clean water. Won't harm you, but tastes strange if not flushed well.
This also works great as a cooking ingredient - I have used this in lieu of lemon in a pinch and it works just fine (be sure to use super sparingly at first!) It really has that mouth-puckering lemony taste which would probably make it great for homemade sour candy and other sour applications.
