Derived from lemon, citric acid is a base for creating a multitude of eco-friendly cleaning product recipes at home. This natural biodegradable product is not toxic to humans or the environment.

It is also an excellent base for making handmade modeling dough or even for acidifying certain recipes, you will not be surprised at the food quality.
To complete your recipes, we also have sodium carbonate, baking soda and disinfecting and deodorizing powder (borax).
