Won't the citric acid make it acidic?

What I'm saying is that you cannnot take a product that is alkaline or basic (PH over 7.0) and add acid (PH below) to it in order to make it stronger or more effective. All you are doing is neutralizing them and making salt.

I'm thinking the main reason these things work is because of their extreeme basic or acid nature. Mixing a basic and acidic product neutralizes that factor?

What about the iodine based sanitizers?
