Color removers, manufactured by dye manufacturers, contain sodium hydrosulfite Na2S2O4—also called “sodium hyposulfite”.
Measure 10 c.c. of the clear liquid and add 20 c.c. of a 10\% solution of potassium iodide, 2 c.c. of acetic acid or hydrochloric acid, then put drop by drop into the mixture a decinormal solution of sodium hyposulfite (2. 48\%) until decoloration.
The number "N" of cubic centimeters of hyposulfite employed multiplied by 1,775 will give the weight "N" of active chloride contained in 100 grammes of chloride of lime.
