    If you die within 10 minutes that's usually a good sign it's fluorine.

    If you show your experimental procedure to an experienced chemist and they run a mile, it could be fluorine.

    Chlorine is a pale green gas so you would be able to see it.

    In water, you can add universal indicator paper which will first turn red as its an acidic solution (HCl) and then turn white because HCl is essentially bleach so it would blech the indicator paper.

    HCl is an active ingridient in bleach which is what I meant, hence why the indicator paper goes colourless...

    There will be no HCl any bleach you'll be able to buy.

    I suspect you're confuzzling Cl2(g) + H2O(l) -> HCl(aq) + HClO(aq) with Cl2(g) + 2NaOH(aq) -> NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) + *NaClO(aq)*

    *NaClO(aq)* is the substance you'd usually be referring to as bleach.
