What Is Home Warranty


Easy breezy ways to purify & freshen air in the home 💐💨

With temperatures rising in the summertime there comes a rise in pollution levels and whether you’re keeping your windows open with cross ventilation or pumping your AC, maintaining clean air in the home is key.

While air purifiers are definitely an option (see our post here on air purifiers), there are several natural ways to clean indoor air that are effective, environmentally friendly and create a fresh scent in the house without the use of toxic air fresheners #ick

*Start small, perhaps by adding a few houseplants or switching to beeswax candles, and gradually implement more of these practices. You can do it.

Houseplants We love a houseplant. Beautiful and practical: they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, and some plants can also remove toxins. Here are some of the best air-purifying plants:

Ventilation Regularly open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate and stale air to exit. Even in colder months, try to ventilate your home for at least 5-10 minutes daily. Using exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms can also help remove pollutants from these high-humidity areas.

Beeswax Candles Beeswax candles burn clean and help reduce indoor pollutants by releasing negative ions. These ions can bind with toxins and help remove them from the air.

Essential Oils Certain essential oils have antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties. Diffusing oils like eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon, and lavender can help purify the air. Make sure to use a high-quality diffuser and pure essential oils to avoid any synthetic additives.

Activated Charcoal Activated charcoal is highly porous and can absorb a large amount of toxins and impurities. Place activated charcoal bags (like these) around your home to help absorb odors and pollutants. Even the back of the fridge! These bags are also reusable—just place them in the sun every month to recharge.

Natural Cleaning Products Many household cleaning products release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can degrade indoor air quality. Opt for natural cleaning products made from ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. They are not only effective but also free from harmful chemicals. Here’s a quick DIY all-purpose cleaning spray. Easy breezy.

Natural Fabrics Use natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, and linen for your furniture and decor. Synthetic materials can off-gas harmful chemicals into the air. Additionally, vacuum and clean these fabrics regularly to remove dust and allergens.
