But the powder is denser, so it loses about a quarter of the volume at equal weight.

Answer:
The acid is somewhat slow acting, so if you have the option, re-run the wash cycle several times without draining the acidic water. Using hot water is best.

Answer:
For keeping fruit from turning brown, dissolve 3 tsp per 1 C water. Remember that citric acid is sour tasting like: lemon juice, Vit C, lime juice. Fruit-Fresh has dextrose as sweetener to offset sour. Have also used citric acid in canning. My favorite use is cleaning.

Answer:
If you use coconut oil as your liquid it won't activate the acid as quickly and will make your skin silky smooth after a bath. Mix all wet ingredients into the oil, then slowly combine with your dry ones:)
