Default New SS wort chiller

I just received my new SS wort chiller in the mail.
Quick Question it says to clean it first to remove oil with TSP/90... i cant find this stuff anywhere. Any substitutes i can use?

PBW (Powdered Brewery Wash) available online and at most LHBS should do the trick

TSP is still sold at Lowes and Home Depot in my area. I saw in Walmart that they had something called TSP alternative that you could try. That said some dish detergent and oxyclean should work fine - unless there is visible oil/grease on the chiller.

The only thing i saw at home depot was TSP ( no 90 on the package and it was a powder) and the TSP alternative

Just get some PBW and call it a day. That stuff is just as important to your brewery as the chiller, believe me.
