Citric Acid is an excellent chelating agent, binding metals. It is used to remove limescale from boilers and evaporators. It can be used to soften water, which makes it useful in soaps and laundry detergents. By chelating the metals in hard water, it lets these cleaners produce foam and work better without need for water softening. it is the active ingredient in some bathroom and kitchen cleaning solutions. A solution with a 6% concentration of citric acid will remove hard water stains from glass without scrubbing. In industry, it is used to dissolve rust from steel. Citric acid can be used in shampoo to wash out wax and colouring from the hair

Bath bombs' primary ingredients are a weak acid and a bicarbonate base. These are unreactive when dry, but react vigorously when dissolved in water to produce their characteristic fizzing over a period of several minutes; carbon dioxide bubbles on bathers' skin gives a tickling sensation some find pleasant. A common chemical mixture is citric acid and sodium bicarbonate, The other ingredients in bath bombs can vary considerably. Most have scented ingredients — such as essential oils — in their composition to impart a pleasant fragrance to the water, and some are brightly coloured. Solid objects, such as glitter, can be added.

The dominant use of citric is as a flavouring and preservative in food and beverages, especially soft drinks. Within the European Union it is denoted by E number E330. Citric can be added to ice cream as an emulsifying agent to keep fats from separating, to caramel to prevent sucrose crystallization, or to recipes in place of fresh lemon juice. It is used with sodium bicarbonate in a wide range of effervescent formulae, both for ingestion (e.g., powders and tablets) and for personal care (e.g., bath salts, bath bombs, and cleaning of grease).It is also often used in cleaning products and sodas or fizzy drinks.

Sold in a dry powdered form is commonly known as "sour salt", due to its physical resemblance to table salt. It has use in culinary applications where an acid is needed for either its chemical properties or for its sour flavour, but a dry ingredient is needed and additional flavours are unwanted.
