Bosch. Ramp up utility savings with the Evolution SHE98 and Integra SHX98 dishwashers. Both models exceed minimum federal energy standards by 147% with yearly use of just 190 kilowatt hours — about the same as dishwashers half their size. Features include EcoOption, offering further energy reduction; Eco-Sense Wash Management, which customizes the wash according to soil levels; and a Half Load cycle that lets users run the dishwasher half full, reducing time, water, and energy use by 30%. 800.921.9622. www.boschappliances.com.
Homax. Keep restoration projects environmentally friendly with Jasco Green Strip. The low-VOC, low-odor, biodegradable solution uses no harsh methylene chloride and is safe to use indoors. Ideal for removing varnish and latex or epoxy paint from wood, metal, and masonry, the fast-acting gel clings to vertical and carved surfaces, making it useful on ornate items. Green Strip is available in ½ gallon and quart sizes, or a 22-ounce trigger spray. The spray formula works best on carved surfaces as it atomizes in a 10-inch spray pattern. 800.729.9029. www.homaxproducts.com.
