Answer for Need to find TSP replacement since it is banned.

Most cleaning products now contain a TSP substitute which consists primarily of sodium carbonate, soda ash and zeolites. Zeolites are added to cleaning products as bulking agents, replacing TSP because they break down in water and become a non-pollutant. These new TSP substitutes possess very little sodium phosphates. Actually, even products marketed as TSP today actually contain less than 50% trisodium phosphate. These substitutes are thought to be less effective than true trisodium phosphate, as they are less alkaline.
