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 With Lemon Juice

lemon-wiki

Cleaning laminate counter-tops: Cut a whole lemon in half, squeeze the juice onto the counter. Using the lemon as a scrubber, work the juice over the stains. Leave the juice on until the stains disappear then rinse with water and dry. The citric acid will quickly remove the stains.

Cutting boards: The same procedure works on cutting boards. Rub the lemon onto the stains and let it sit until the stains are gone. The lemon will also disinfect the board at the same time.

Cleaning brass: If a piece is brass plated, it will be brass on one side and solid black on the other side. Never use lemon on anything that is brass plated — only solid brass. Brass plated items need to be cleaned very gently with an oil soap — never use anything acidic on it.One half of a lemon with salt sprinkled on it and rub until it is clean. Rinse well with water.

Removing rust from clothes: Put lemon juice on the rust stain and then sprinkle cream of tartar onto the top of the juice. Rub in the solution and let it sit on the stain until the rust is gone. The citric acid will take the rust off. Some stains are tougher than others, but 15 to 30 minutes should work just fine.

Bleaching white clothes with lemon juice: Mix 1/2 cup lemon juice (or sliced lemons) with one gallon of very hot water. Soak the clothes in the solution. Do not use for silk, it is best for cotton and polyester. Let the clothes soak from an hour to overnight, depending on how badly the clothing needs bleaching. Rremove the clothing from the mix and pour the mix into the washing machine and wash as usual.

Getting stains out of Tupperware: Squeeze lemon juice in the container and then add baking soda. Use the lemon as a cleaning tool and work it in. If the stains are bad, let it sit overnight before scrubbing the stains.

Remove odours from refrigerator: Lemon helps in removing odours from your refrigerator with a half lemon on a saucer. Change once a week.

Clean windows and mirrors: Mix half a cup of white vinegar with a quart of lukewarm water. Add a quarter cup of lemon juice and mix. This solution is strong enough to cut through the grease on the kitchen window.
