Actually Chlorine is a gas at room temperature. Mixed form of chlorine is also used as an Ordinary table salt (i.e. sodium chloride, NaCl) it is also known as half chlorine, thus a simple electrochemical reaction of sodium chloride with salt water produces chlorine gas more easily. Thus, the same reaction produces with sodium hydroxide (NaOH), and by mixing chlorine gas with sodium hydroxide you create sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl).

Moreover Chlorine acts as a greatest disinfectant so that it is majorly used in pools and waters. This has the ability to kill germs, various other bacteria, viruses and algae present in the water. Chlorine is also used for cleaning clothes which acts as a greatest stain remover, but not only because of the chlorine. Natural stains (as well as dyes) produced by everything which come from chemical compounds called chromophores. Chromophores can easily absorb light at definite wavelengths and therefore produces colors. Thus, the reaction of chlorine with water, resulting in the production of hydrochloric acid and atomic oxygen. Thus, the oxygen reacts easily with these chromophores to eradicate the portion of its structure that causes the color.
