There is another way you can easily enhance the efforts of any indoor air quality product while adding a fashionable calm to your home. How? Go to your community greenhouse! Several houseplants have been shown to eliminate or trap toxins and raise indoor air quality.

Don’t think you have a green thumb? Fear not, these plants need minimal care. Check some of them out!

Peace Lily

Peace lilies can actually absorb mold spores using their leaves. The spores make their way to the roots and are used as sustenance for the lily. This feature, and their need for very little light, make peace lilies a fabulous option for bathrooms. They can help keep bathroom surfaces clear of mildew and are also known to absorb destructive vapors produced by alcohol and acetone.

 

Spider Plant

If you or someone who lives in your home suffers from allergies, a spider plant could be perfect for your home. Not only are they incredibly easy to grow, but they absorb mold and other allergens. They can even absorb some carbon monoxide put off by home appliances and formaldehyde, which can be found in many cleaning solutions.

 

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a true must when it comes to keeping your home healthy. It helps eliminate airborne benzene released from paint and some chemical cleaning products. Not only does it help keep your air clean, the gel in its leaves is wonderful for treating minor cuts and burns. Could it get even better? While it works hard to take care of your home, you have to do minimal to take care of it. No green thumb needed.
