Preparation method:
Transfer the detergent base to a larger bowl.
In a separate bowl combine the ingredients of phase B.
In another bowl, phase C is prepared by dissolving the citric acid in the water.
In a small bowl, mix the xanthan gum with the glycerin to form a paste.

Phases B, C and then D are added one at a time over phase A, with slow, thorough mixing, avoiding excessive foaming. The solution thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container or to a clean reused bottle. 
Immediately after preparation the solution is still fluid, but will thicken in the next 48 hours.
After resting, a yellow, transparent solution results, quite viscous, with high washing and foaming power. 

Ethanol can be found at any supermarket in the spirits department (grain alcohol 96°/agricultural alcohol 96°).

The result is a concentrated ecological detergent, suitable for degreasing, removing difficult dirt, sanitization of various surfaces in the house and workshop. It can be used as such to remove difficult dirt, 3-4 drops on a damp cloth or sponge. It can also be diluted, 3 ml in 5 L of water to clean various washable surfaces.
