    I’m delighted that TR have started stocking citric acid – it’s such a versatile thing to have in the cleaning cupboard when you live with hard water! A slightly stronger acid than vinegar, and none of the vinegary smell. A couple of table spoons in the kettle for descaling, a cup in the washing machine for descaling and cleaning. I pour a jug of hot water down the loo and a few tablespoons of citric acid to get rid of the lime scale and get it properly clean, rather than just bleaching the scale so you can’t see it. Diluted with warm water in a spray bottle for cleaning scale in the shower and surfaces… basically anywhere limescale lurks, citric acid (and warm water) are your friend! Great stuff!

    After a conversation with Jenny, here’s a great recipe for spray cleaner using citric acid from Nancy Birtwhistle whose ‘Clean and Green’ book is worth a read (thanks to a friend for passing it on). Nancy calls it toilet magic or pure magic.
    200g citric acid
    150ml just boiled water
    20ml eco-friendly washing up liquid
    10-20 drops tea tree oil
    Place the citric acid crystals in a heatproof jug, add the hot water and stir to dissolve. Add the washing up liquid and tea tree oil and mix well. Leave uncovered for a couple of hours then pour into a spray bottle. Great at getting under the rim of the loo, around showers and taps etc., and is eco-friendly. Spray, leave, brush and rinse. Needs a through rinse or it can dry sticky around taps and surfaces. If the spray head seizes due to the citric acid re-crystalising, soak the spray head in hot water to re-dissolve.
