RE: Cleaning teak with TSP?

I read somewhere (maybe here, can't remember) that you can use TSP to clean teak instead of buying expensive teak cleaner. Is this the case? Does it do a job as good as commercial cleaners? Other homemade recipees?
*This is not a homemade recipe and actually is a commercial cleaner.*TSP is a staple of just about every refinishing shop in America. After stripping furniture, a high pressure washer is used to wash off and neutralize the chemical. Then TSP is applied with a a small 2 gal hand pump style Bug Sprayer and rinsed off. It will help bleach the wood and clean it from any residual oils that may have been left behind.
