I'm not sure how molasses affects chlorine and chloramine. I have heard of Vitamin C working but I used to use potassium metabisulfite when I brewed beer and it worked well.
Not really sure if I would recommend doing that for growing though. Seems like more than I'd want to do but to each his own. If I were to recommend something I'd say look into getting a Canister RV carbon water filter with garden hose fittings, or any other type of carbon filter for water. At least that way you wouldn't have to add something to treat the water every time.
That being said I've been watering my plants outside straight from the hose with no issues and I know for a fact my water has chloramine it. The plants don't seem to mind though.
