    Question about Vitamin C Tablet

    Quick question:

    Is there a specific "type" of vitamin c tablet I should use to test stains? I haven't bought vitamin c in years so I asked my wife to pick up some today. She got some chewable ones. I wonder if they are too weak or might have other issues being chewable?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rob

    Nearly any kind will work, look for 500 mg or more (or use several together in a sock). Some of them leave a bit of residue behind, but the chlorine will break that down fairly quickly, and all of them have the desired effect.
