Sodium Sulfite is one of the most useful chemicals around. It is used as a clearing bath for polariod negative film, as an oxygen scavenger in developers, a main ingredient in hypo clear formula and mainy more.

In small quantities it can be expensive, but in bulk quite cheap. The Looking Glass has it in stock.
