Citric Acid: Citric Acid is commonly used in making bath fizzies and bath bombs.

How to make bath bombs/bath fizzies.

Q:  Will citric acid lose it's potency (for making bath fizzies) over time?  In other words, what is its shelf life?

A:  Citric acid will not lose its potency if it is not exposed to any air and is kept in an airtight container.  This probably isn't very feasible in most storage situations though, as humidity is fairly good at getting into the smallest and tightest spaces.  I would recommend using your citric acid within 6 months of receiving it to be on the safe side.  There is nothing worse than making a batch of fizzies and finding them to be substandard in the fizzing department!

Best I've found for Bath Bombs
This is the best Citric Acid I've found for use in making my bath bombs. There is a big difference in both, how it behaves while formulating and most importantly in the end product! Thank you.

Citric acid
I love making bath bombs and this is what I always use in them. It works great to add the nice fizzing action. I always buy the 10 pound bag which is very well packaged.

I am very pleased with BB's citric acid. I originally purchased it to make shower fizzies, and now I use it as an addition to my homemade laundry detergent. I order two at a time when I need more, and the price is perfect. Thankyou Bramble Berry, for yet another high quality product. :)

Don't Buy Anywhere Else!
I recently used another source because it had free shipping and was cheaper. I guess I got what I paid for because it is very grainy and definitely does not behave the same as the order I previously made from Bramble Berry. Guess I will find a new use for it. I AM GOING BACK TO BRAMBLE BERRY as my source because there is no comparison. I learned my lesson. :)

The best!
This citric acid is the best price I have found yet (and don't be deceived by sites that offer rock-bottom prices then charge $50 shipping). I was a little concerned that the great price and reasonable shipping charges were too good to be true. Not so. :) The quality of this citric acid is top notch and fizzes beautifully in my bath bombs. I'm so glad that I didn't go elsewhere and pay a little extra "just to be safe". Bramble Berry has proven time and again to provide top quality goods and customer service to help my little soap shop grow and blossom. I bought this on my first order, and just placed my 4th. Will be back for more... Once I stop playing with the ingredients I already have and finally launch my shop that is :).
