Keep Odours Away
If you want to live in a pleasant environment, then it is essential that you remove all unpleasant smells. This can be achieved by placing flowers that you’ve picked from the garden, fresh fruit from your kitchen and activated charcoal, sea salt or bicarbonate of soda that you can place in little bowls around your home. It is highly advisable that you remember to allow fresh air to circulate into your home by opening your windows on sunny days and to ensure that your indoor humidity stays as low as possible. The dampness caused by allowing extra moisture into the home can cause unpleasant smells to spread. Ensure drains are cleaned regularly and that towels are dry.
Indoor plants and the micro-organisms in the soil they grow in are also a great way freshen up the quality of the indoor air in your home. They remove many common indoor toxins such as ammonia, benzene and formaldehyde which are released from paint furnishings and other materials in our homes. These chemicals can cause irritation, fatigue, and other common ailments. Just ensure you water your indoor plants once or twice a week as well as remove the dust from their leaves and they will continue to clean the air in your home in return.
