Moreover, what does tsp do to glass?
Trisodium phosphate, or TSP, is a cleaning product composed of soda ash and phosphoric acid commonly used to remove difficult stains and rust. It can etch the glass or leave a stain behind, which makes the glass looking cloudy or white-colored.
Similarly, does TSP need to be rinsed? Standard TSP must be rinsed away with clean water. Depending on how dirty the surface is, several rinses may be necessary. It isn't as strong as the original TSP, but it is well-suited for lightly soiled surfaces and general-purpose cleaning. It requires no rinsing when mixed as directed.
Also to know is, will TSP damage windows?
Concentrated TSP, or TSP allowed to dry on glass can cause etching. If that has happened the damage may be irreversible. Hydrofluoric and phosphoric acids are better known etching agents, but trisodium phosphate, while slower, can also severely damage glass.
Can you use dish soap to wash windows?
Cleaning the Outside of Windows Start by rinsing the windows with the hose, then fill a bucket with clean, cool water and add a few drops of liquid dish soap. Spray or mop with the vinegar and water solution or with a commercial cleanser. Wipe the window dry using a clean, rubber-bladed squeegee.
