TSP is Tri Sodium Phospate.. its a pretty strong cehmical cleaner.. be sure to where gloves , long sleeves, eye protectant etc when you use it.. but it WORKS.. it gets the grime and junk off of metal nicely..

Trisodium phosphate is a very common ingredient in breakfast cerials such as Cheerios. Weird, huh?

Clean as a whistle?

Um. Have you ever tested a whistle for bacteria?

As a side note, some TSP isn't TSP. Because of the environmental effects of the phosphate, some cleaners are labeled TSP but actually contain a substitute. Read the label carefully.

That's good to know because there is gunk I can't spray off with a pressure washer after multiple attempts.

For some of the more stubborn gunk, grease and grime you can try using M.E.K. (methel ethel ketone). One of our supervisors used to be a helicopter mechanic in the milirary and said they used it for degreasing and cleaning engines. We use it as painters for the same purpose but also for the added benefit of it not leaving a residue to affect paint quality. The smell is pretty strong though so be sure to use gloves and make sure you have plenty of ventilation. Goggles wouldn't be a bad idea either. It evaporates fairly quickly as well and its highly flammable and easily ignited by sparks or open flame so use caution. We use it all the time without any issues, but then again we're not usually working around sparks. And don't pile up the rags, same thing with mineral spirits and paint thinner. All the rags in a pile can generate enough heat to spontaneously combust.

There is also another chemical can't remember the name of it but it's used to make styrofoam ,Fast food restaurants also use it to make their hamburger buns extra white, it's banned in every other country in the world for food use except the USA & I read if you get caught using it in I think it was Singapore it's 30 yrs in prison. Subway just recently stopped using it.
Here's the name
azodicarbonamide
