How to Store and Neutralize TCCA(Trichloroisocyanuric acid)?

I bought some TCCA(Trichloroisocyanuric acid). Is there a chemical agent that can be used to remove the chlorine smell? I know I can't use acids, because that would produce chlorine gas. I will store the reagent in two bags but I need to get rid of the smell, as it even goes through masks.

Is there a way to neutralize TCCA?

There isn’t a way that wouldn’t render your TCCA useless…

Though, maybe storing it in a secondary container containing some sodium metabisulfite would help to reduce chlorine fumes.

Either way, you should store it in a glass or HDPE container with an airtight lid. Storing chemicals in bags is never a good idea for long term.

I like the glass camlock style jars, coat the orings with lots of silicon grease.

vacuum would increase evaporation- and deteoriation
so if you wanna get really fancy you could weld up a pressurized container and put it in there and then pressurize it, that should keep it from decomposing- maybe. otherwise just maybe invest in some plastic bucket with lid and maybe some sealing rubber tape to line the edges with, sprinkle the bottom with some sodium carbonate to neutralize vapors
maybe even NaOH- Ca(OH)2 would probably be cheaper even and less nasty to get on your fingers

~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.
