                                                       Purify your indoor air......

             Environmental Science & Technology highlights a worrisome reality about dust in our homes: It can contain a mixture of potentially toxic chemicals that leach out of everything from fabrics to paint to flooring materials and can pose hazards including dizziness,asthma,and allergies. Three ways to keep indoor air as clean as possible:

  • Open windows often     
  • Buy air-cleansing houseplants
  • Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

       Five common houseplants-Caribbean tree cacti,jade plants,bromeliads,spider plants,and dracaenas were proven to be effective at filtering harmful substances from indoor air. Plants absorb dangerous compounds from the air in to their leaves and then move them to their root zones,where microbes break them down.
