Amazon.com has a great deal on Citric Acid.

This stuff is great for so many different household uses. This is the lowest price ever according to the camel. This is below the FP deal last time.

for those wondering about its many uses. here is one of the reviews from Amazon.com
"Citric acid is one of those incredibly useful items to have on hand. I use it mainly for cleaning tasks such as:

> cleaning coffee machines - works much better than vinegar at removing hard water deposits.

> cleaning hot water pots - as above. Much easier and less smell than using vinegar.

> cleaning dishwashers - add a couple of tablespoons and run the dishwasher through a cycle when it is empty. Makes the interior sparkle like new.

> boosting dishwasher detergent performance - add a small amount (about a teaspoon or less) to dishwasher detergent. Really boosts the cleaning power and eliminates hazy dishes. Be careful not to use too much, however, since it can pit delicate glass or metal.

> cleaning steam cleaners, steam mops and irons - gets all the crud out.

Basically, this is the best cleaner for anything that is affected by hard water deposits. You can buy commercial products such as Cleancaf or other similar cleaners, but the main active ingredient is citric acid. You can get it bulk at a fraction of the cost.

The only downside is that this comes packaged in a thin plastic sack. The first thing you'll want to do is transfer it to a plastic container with a tight fitting lid. Makes it much easier to store and use. Regardless of the container, citric acid clumps up easily when there's humidity in the air, but that does not affect its performance. Just bust up the clump and you're good to go. The shelf life is indefinite when you use it as a cleaning product."

This is a great deal. I almost forgot that I bought this the last time around several months sago. This stuff is so good to have on hand - the grocery stores charge 3-4x this much.

Thanks for the helpful usages, I ended up buying a pound to try from a store with Amazon as the seller in case I can't find a use for it. From the sound of it, I should be able to clean something with it!

You can clean with it, make candy with it, or make bath bombs with it. I think most people buying it from amazon are using it for bath bombs, considering all the other suggested items (baking soda, sphere molds).

Cheap bath bombs.

Since I really, really hate the smell of vinegar, I dissolve citric acid in water and use it instead of vinegar for cleaning. You have to be a bit careful when spraying it because, while it smells good (like 7-up, but very faint), it will irritate your lungs if you inhale very much.

If you look at the True Lemon, citric acid is it's main ingredient followed by lemon oil I believe. So in short, it's decent to add to tea among other things.

Not as good as muriatic acid, and that's $7 a gallon.
