Detox 10 Chemical air fresheners pollute the air

Unpleasant odours give an important message about the air quality within your home.  Instead of masking odours with artificial fragrances or air fresheners you can use natural, healthy alternatives.  Chemical air fresheners pollute the air you breathe rather than refresh.  To cleanse the air in your home, follow these simple, natural hints:

1. Remove the cause of the problem, if possible, then open up windows and doors to allow through ventilation.

2. Place activated charcoal or bicarb soda powder in bowls to soak up smells.

3. Wipe over tables and benches using white vinegar.

4. Use indoor plants (including herbs) to soak up chemicals such as formaldehyde and ammonia.  Plants are natural air filters, with large-leafed green plants especially valuable.

About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
