Put Your House on a Detox to Rid Common Toxins

Are you aware that there are so many toxins affecting your health, and they are living in your home!? While it is impossible and impractical to remove all of the toxins from your home, it is very wise to educate yourself about the most common toxins in your household. Removing these toxins can boost your overall health and immune system. This year, you may have resolved to doing a detox for your health, but why not resolve to do a detox for your home too. Here are some simple ways to do so.

Add More Plants Everywhere

While it is impossible to remove every toxin from your household, you can breathe easier just by adding more indoor houseplants. Certain indoor plants will naturally remove air pollutants, such as ammonia, which is commonly found in cleaning products and formaldehyde, which is commonly found in furniture. Try placing plants in the most populated areas of your home, especially in areas where you spend the most time, such as the bedroom. The great news is that many indoor plants are low-maintenance and can even be kept alive by people who have black thumbs.

Get Rid of Fragrance

Everyone wants their homes to smell better, but many of the fragrance products available put a lot of chemicals in the air. Try doing without perfume, scented candles, and room sprays. Instead, open up the window to let the fresh breeze make your home smell nice. There are also natural ways to make your home smell nice, such as boiling a pot of orange slices and cinnamon.

Look into Natural Pest Control

Pests are a nuisance, but getting rid of them with harmful products can be a nuisance to your health. Instead, look up more natural ways to get rid of pests or look for natural products. There are also a few pest control companies that use more natural products than their competitors.

Switch to Natural Cleaning Products

What an oxymoron it is that the products you use to clean your home can actually make you sick. It is better for your health to use more natural products or homemade cleaning products. There are several on the market now, as well as many natural and easy recipes to make your own cleaners.
