Orchids and the products required to care for them, including fertilizer and planting media like sphagnum moss, can be purchased from a nursery or home center. Tom shims a window that has fallen out of parallel due to improper installation.The materials Tom used to fix the window gap, including shims, the hammer, and the utility knife, can be found at home centers. Mark demonstrates how to clean soot out of brick using acid. Mark cleaned the brick with Sure Klean 600 acidic cleaner, manufactured by Prosoco. It can be found at masonry supply stores and sometimes at painting supply stores. This cleaner should not be confused with muriatic acid, which is stronger and more dangerous. The other materials used for this project, including buckets, brushes, drop cloths, gloves, and goggles, can be found at home centers. Ross finds a solar panel that can generate clean drinking water out of thin air. Ross saw the SOURCE solar panel array, manufactured by Zero Mass Water.
