Default Purigen question

Trying to use purigen for the first time due to my water being cloudy in a planted tank hoping to resolve the issue. I put 100ml into a mesh bag and placed it in the filter of a 55g tank. The next day the purigen beads turned yellowish-tan some brown, but the water is still cloudy. I am going on day 2 almost 3 and the purigen beads are the same color and the tank cloudiness looks unchanged. Any recommendations? Should I recharge the purigen with 1:1 bleach/water or add more purigen? Is my purigen already exhausted?
