Bleaching is required to whiten the color of materials by removing the color of a material. Therefore, the bleaching agent is necessary to be used in the bleaching process. Sodium chlorite, one of the bleaching agents, is still used for the bleaching process in the textile and paper industry due to chlorine dioxide generation which is responsible for the color removal. Odor control in the aquatic environment is also able to be fulfilled by sodium chlorite.
