TSP is often used for washing exterior surfaces prior to painting. Often it is used in combination with bleach. TSP and bleach may kill both the mildew and remove characteristic stains. Test first. Typically you do not use on metals as the TSP and the bleach may damage many metal and painted surfaces. Test first. It can also adversely stain woods. Typically you do not use strong concentrations on glass either, since it may leave a filmy residue.

For extra foam add a good surfactant. We recommend the Decyl Glucoside. If you are using BLEACH we recommend Lauramine Oxide for foaming, and Myrastimine Oxide for foaming PLUS building viscocity / thickness for some hang time. Test before using.
