Can I use TSP to clean mildew on a fiberglass deck?
TSP is a good cleaner, best if you mix it with bleach and water. That should clean the mildew.

It can be mixed in a plastic pail without corroding the plastic.
Can TSP be used on wallpaper as a cleaner before painting over wallpaper? Will TSP in any way deform the finish on a laminate floor?
TSP is a good cleaner prep prior to painting. Rinse well and don't let it stay on the laminate floor for a long time.

Just fresh water to rinse.
can I use trisodium phosphate to strip acrylic floor polish from vinyl floors?

A small amount added to a hand dish washing soap will enhance the cleaning ability but should be rinsed well or it will leave streaks.

Gets laundry cleaner
Works great, but ...
Works great, but try mixing with baking soda to get an even more effective cleaner. Note that his is chemically different from the phosphates that have been banned; it does not stimulate plant growth. The banned phosphates have been shown in numerous studies to cause offensive and toxic algal blooms in lakes and the coastal ocean - the government did a good thing on this one.
TSP a great cleaner
As a kid, laundry detergent got clothes clean. Then regulators said (without much science behind it) that phosphates are bad for the environment. Cleaners of all types became less effective. I've used other TSP products, with much less success. This is the real mccoy and has freshened, whitened my laundry from the first use. Same for other cleaning chores like my boats, lawn furniture as well. Recommend that everyone get some before this is regulated out of your ability to buy.
Heavy duty cleaner
Use small amounts (tsp or tblspn) for dishes and clothes. Only a few treatments will leave your everyday tableware shining. Clothes come out brighter,too.

Great for steel
I restore old electronics. For those with steel chassis and panels I was amazed how well its strips old paint--no paint remover needed if soaked in high concentration. The phosphate is a well known rust remover--many recommend using Coca Cola for that reason, but here you have it without the sugar mess. Can't beat REAL TSP.
best stuff ever
i use this for cleaning in gen.dishwasher works great.carpets great look new again.and husbands work cloths. only 1 teaspoon in dishwasher is all i use.and a little less than 1/2 teaspoon mixed with carpet cleaner.
Great product, good price and delivery
I grew tired of the government-mandated cleaning products with their phosphate content removed. None of them works at all. Adding this Tri-sodium PHOSPHATE back into the detergents made them work the way they did before the government got into the "make America dirty" business.My only complaint is that the detergenmt mixing lab is now in my kitchen instead of at the manuafacturer. But it does get the job done.
This product is as good as the old Spicn Span in the orange box was for cleaning the dirt and mildew off wooden decks, and is great on linoleum floors and bathroom floors and tubs. Put a little on your scrub brush and just watch the dirt come off with each pass you make with the brush.
Very glad to find an source of TRUE TSP. Most products that claim to be TSP are just an uneffective alternate. The product works great and is a true value.
Best Detergent Additive
Nothing makes detergents work as well as TSP. Adding 1/8 to 1/4 cup to a load of laundry will make a noticeable difference. A tablespoon will demonstrate that your dishwasher isn't the problem in getting your dishes clean!
