On 3 January 2013, exactly 6 months ago, while testing yet another batch of shot glass/over night CDS, I put 1 liter of 2200 ppm CDS in a recycled tall glass olive oil bottle and capped it with a silicone tapered plug, and forgot about it.

Today I discovered it and decided to measure how much of the original 2200 ppm was left.

To my surprise today it measures 1500 ppm. So, the CDS retained 2/3 or 67% of its original 2200 ppm ClO2 concentration.

That is impressive, but I what didn't mention is that the glass bottle was not kept in the fridge; it was in a bedroom closet at room temperature!

Must be the original "stabilized" CDS. ;) Photo was taken 3 July 2013.

It has now been one year since this bottle of CDS was made, so it was tested today, again.

The result is 1150 ppm.

Original ppm = 2200
6 months later = 1500
12 months later = 1150

The CDS still has a yellow color and the usual CLO2 gas smell.

And still has not been inside a fridge.

This will be the last test as I needed the 1 liter glass bottle yesterday, so the CDS is now gone. :(
The bottle again holds Organic Olive Oil. :)
