    Neutralizing Ilfochrome bleach?

    Hi folks, I do not have any baking soda in the house at the moment and I have all my Ilfochrome chemistry set up and ready to go for a days printing. Can I use whiting (calcium carbonate) to neutralize the bleach when I am finished with the session? I have a bunch of whiting and a little soda ash and some bone ash. Can I use these to neutralize the bleach or do I have to make a trip to the grocery store?
    thanks in advance!
    regards
    Erik

    Yes, this can be used. Add the carbonate very slowly until the fizzing stops.
