Natural Air Cleaners

With the striving to be environmentally conscious, many homes are now so heavily insulated that the air quality can actually be toxic!

Freshen your home by opening windows and doors wide on mild days. Let the breeze blow through to circulate the air and let some fresh air in.

Another easy and decorative way to clean the air in your home is with plants.  Houseplants are natural air cleaners, turning carbon dioxide into oxygen and absorbing other toxic pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia and others I can't pronounce correctly, let alone spell!

Because different plants absorb different chemicals it's a good idea to have a variety of plants throughout the house. Tropical plants work especially well indoors because they are accustomed to the indirect light and warm environment in most homes.

How many plants to do you need? Research by NASA suggests a minimum of 18 houseplants throughout the average 4 bedroom home.

Do away with horrible artificial air fresheners. Switch to indoor plants and enjoy naturally clean air.
