Is it SuperCal 98G or SuperCal SO4?

SuperCal 98G and SuperCal SO4 can often be confused. From their similar names to the similar nature of their appearance, people wonder, how do I know which product I have?

The vinegar test is a simple test you can perform quickly and easily to know whether the product you have is SuperCal 98G or SuperCal SO4.

The acid neutralizing reactions between the carbonate and acid in the vinegar will cause SuperCal 98G to fizz. Since there is no carbonate in SuperCal SO4, it will do nothing.

Combine no more than 1 teaspoon of pellets and a 1/4 teaspoon of vinegar in a reaction proof container with an open top.

SuperCal 98G is on the left, with its tell-tale fizzing. That is a result of 1 ml of vinegar and 1 tsp of each product. SuperCal SO4 is on the right, no reactions.
