To make the homemade toilet cleaner, first mix the measured out baking soda and citric acid in a bowl and mix well. Add the color, essential oils or the perfume that you like and mix well till it is thoroughly moistened. You have to add it drop by drop, if you add too much they will start fizzing. Press them in silicone molds, remove and let them dry out.


Shower – For a deep cleaning, fill a spray bottle with a mixture of citric acid and hot water. Use two tablespoons of citric acid to one liter of hot water.

Citric Acid to Prevent Sugar Crystallizing:

I always prefer to add citric acid at the end when I am making my homemade jams. Adding citric acid prevents sugar crystallizing and helps to improve the flavor and the color of the jam that we are making. Try to add it at the end and add it according to sourness of the fruit you are making the jam with. You can also add it to sugar syrups, sherbets, etc.
