Lime vs calcium hydroxide

Here’s a question from friend, Joy McC.

“What kind of lime do you need? Is it Calcium hydroxide? Does it need to be 100% lime?
What happens if your indigo vat has too much oxygen, how do you bring it back? Add more fructose? or lime?”

We’ll be answering in an upcoming post so stay tuned.
