In the 1970s i worked as a janitor and one day in the lunchroom as i ate my lunch i was reading the ingredient label for Cheerios. One of the ingredients was "trisodium phosphate". The same product ~ TSP~ that we used to scrub walls,floors,etc. and that still abounds in home improvement stores everywhere. They have changed it instead now to "tricalciumphosphate"
