Citric Acid-a mild acid in powder form that is commonly found in citrus fruits. It is used to add acidity to the dyebath and to precipitate the fine lac residue when using powdered lac dye. Citric Acid is also used as an alternative acid with Aquarelle Liquid Natural dyes.
- 100 g of Citric Acid will provide ample amounts for using lac and acidifying a dyebath. If using with Aquarelle natural dyes, 100 grams will be enough for about 3 pounds (1400 grams) of fiber.
