Yes, see earlier posts in this thread for some formulas.

Since the amounts are not all that critical, I often mix my wash-aid as a spoon recipe: one Tablespoon of sodium sulfite per liter with a generous pinch of sodium bisulfite as buffer. Use one-shot.

Using only sulfite is possible, but not quite as effective and the capacity is reduced somewhat. See the discussion earlier in this thread as well.
