Plants that improves indoor air quality

House plants are the ultimate in functional decorating. Some well-placed greenery can not only brighten a space but also purify the air and they’re also helpful in creating a more relaxing, restful ambiance in any room. We know that spending time in nature is linked to reduced stress levels and relieve tension. Also projects like installing new carpet and painting walls can release chemicals that pollute indoor air. Luckily, some houseplants moonlight as efficient purifiers.

So which houseplants should you pick? Simply don’t pick any plant that is available in the market. Most people have thousands of choices of species. Below are few plants that we suggest to choose from for improving indoor air quality.

Aloe Plant (Aloe vera)Aloe_vera_plant

Aloe is a smart choice for a sunny kitchen window. Beyond its air-clearing abilities, the gel inside an aloe plant can help heal cuts and burns. It can also help to monitor the air quality in your home. The plant can help clear the air of pollutants found in chemical cleaning products, and when the amount of harmful chemicals in the air becomes excessive, the plants’ leaves will display brown spots.

English Ivy8in Ivy

Scientists listed the English Ivy as the number one best air-filtering houseplant, as it is the most effective plant when it comes to absorbing formaldehyde which is the most prevalent indoor pollutant. It’s also incredibly easy to grow and adaptable. This hearty, climbing vine thrives in small spaces too. It also fares well in rooms with few windows or little sunlight. Try it as a hanging or a floor plant.

Peace LilySpathiphyllum_cochlearispathum_RTBG

The beautiful peace lily plant is a wonderful low-maintenance flower to keep in the home. Peace lilies do well in shade and cooler temperatures, and they can reduce the levels of a number of toxins in the air. It also sucks up acetone, which is emitted by electronics, adhesives, and certain cleaners. It adapts well to low light but requires weekly watering and is poisonous to pets.

Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)chinese-evergreen

This easy-to-care-for plant can help filter out a variety of air pollutants and begins to remove more toxins as time and exposure continues. Even with low light, it will produce blooms and red berries.

Bamboo palm14 seif

Also known as the reed palm, this small palm thrives in shady indoor spaces and often produces flowers and small berries. It tops the list of plants best for filtering out both benzene and trichloroethylene. They’re also a good choice for placing around furniture that could be off-gassing formaldehyde.

Snake Plantsnake-plant

Snake plants also known as mother-in-law’s tongue don’t need much light or water to survive, so they’re an easy choice for any corner of your home. This plant is one of the best for filtering out formaldehyde, which is common in cleaning products, toilet paper, tissues and personal care products. Also this plant absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen during the night (while most plants do during the day), so add one to your bedroom for a clean-air boost.

Philodendronphilodendron-selloum-50cm

The heart-shaped philodendron is a popular plant choice for indoor areas, as they’re easy to care for and can grow decorative vines. Like the English Ivy, they are particularly good at absorbing formaldehyde. They can also last for many years when properly cared for. Grow with moderate water and some sunlight and they’ll be fine.

Spider Plantspider-plant-easy-air-indoor-filter

One of the most common house plants. Spider plants are effective at fighting pollutants including benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene.Even if you tend to neglect houseplants, you’ll have a hard time killing this resilient plant. With lots of rich foliage and tiny white flowers, the spider plant battles benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene, a solvent used in the leather, rubber and printing industries. These plants are tolerant of both dry and humid conditions and consume less water.

Golden Pothos34569162

Also known as Devil’s ivy or silver vine, the golden pothos can be a highly invasive plant. With evergreen leaves and progressive stems, this hardy plant easily overtakes its surrounding area.Yet it is also very efficient when it comes to removing indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene and xylene. Consider it for your garage since car exhaust is filled with formaldehyde.

Cleaning Using Vodka

tumblr_mlj13u7XMq1qkaa8zo1_500

This New Year think outside martini glass use those left over vodka as a eco friendly cleaning for your home. Vodka is great for countertops, faucets, bathroom tile, mirrors, you name it.  Vodka is a great choice for eco-friendly cleaning.  With its high alcohol content, it kills mold and mildew and disinfects well. Plus, it’s fantastic for shining fixtures.

Below are some of the tips to use vodka as a eco-friendly cleaning:

  1. Vodka is great for cleaning jewellery. Just pour some vodka in a dish, take the ring and swish it back and forth. Dry it off and it will give a beautiful sheen. If it is really dirty, put it in and let it soak a while and then scrub with a toothbrush.
  2. To remove mold and mildew from caulking, fill a spray bottle with inexpensive vodka and spray it onto the mold and mildew. Let this sit for about 15 minutes. Then scrub with a toothbrush, if necessary.
  3. To get a sparkling shine on your eyeglasses that don’t have protective coating, spritz with vodka and buff with a soft cloth. Do not use on coated lenses of eyeglasses that suggest avoiding alcohol based products.
  4. Because of vodka’s high alcohol content, it is a potent insect killer. Put a little in a spray bottle and squirt the bugs or yourself. They will be on their drunken way.
  5. Use it on doorknobs, light switches, and more for quick eco-friendly disinfecting.
  6. Remove the glue left behind by stickers and labels. Rub the glue with a soft, clean cloth soaked in vodka.
  7. To get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke, mix one part vodka to three parts water, spray and let dry.
  8. Clean tiles in the bathroom by spraying with vodka. Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse. Great for getting rid of soap scum.
