I use Hydrogen peroxide to disinfect I just put a spray top on the bottle. Last week we found out that many popular household cleaners have hidden toxic chemicals. For those of you who don't know, trisodium phosphate was a synonym for pure cleaning power!! I highly encourage this!
Short and sharp … but the Earth911 suggestion is a massive timesaver. Use only as much TSP as you need, and tightly control the runoff. Generally, you will have to apply some elbow-grease if the mildew or other staining is severe.

We will never sell your email address! Use no more than 3 drops or else you want your countertops to smell strongly of oregano.
Thank you for sharing so much great information. Any foliage near where TSP is to be used should be soaked with plain water prior to the application of TSP, and rinsed down afterward.
Hi Lori , thanks so much for the post. What do we do? Let dry completely and after that vacuum.
So how do we recycle or dispose of soap? Before starting your cleaning project, be sure to check local regulations. Well, the story goes that the release of vast quantities of phosphates into the open environment caused a shift in the balance of life in lakes, rivers, and streams. Read the manufacturer's mixing ratios, as they may vary.
In recent years, however, the popularity of TSP has waned. Wrap containers in paper before disposing in the trash. The tip to check earth911 to see the rules where you live for disposing of hazardous waste is really helpful.
I mean there are a few ways which will put you on a 10 most wanted liat real fast. I LOVE making my own cleaners.
Liquid bleach is often added to TSP if there is mildew on the surfaces.
