You shouldn't then have any concerns about capacity or contamination, or encounter any mould.

HCA is probably also something that does not need to be formulated very precisely; unlike developer or fix, you can probably get away with teaspoon measures once you work out much your current batch of sodium sulphite weighs in your standard teaspoon measure, and how many teaspoons you need for a given volume of water.
