Isn't oxyclean just oxalic acid, ie Bartenders Friend and a thousand other products?
Wikipedia says:
The active ingredient in OxiClean is sodium percarbonate (Na2CO3•H2O2), an adduct of sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

Don't know whether this is the same main ingredient in other cleaning products or not.
