Several houseplants have been shown to remove or trap toxins and improve indoor air quality. Not confident you have a green thumb? Don’t worry, these plants require minimal care. Check a couple of them out! Peace Lily Peace lilies are able to absorb mold spores using their leaves. The spores make their way to the roots and are used as food for the plant. This ability, and their need for minimal light, make peace lilies a fabulous option for bathrooms. They can assist in keeping bathroom surfaces clear of mildew and are also known to absorb damaging vapors created by alcohol and acetone. Spider Plant If you or someone who lives in your home suffers from allergies, a spider plant could be best for your home. Not only are they incredibly easy to grow, but they absorb mold and other impurities that cause allergies. They can even absorb some carbon monoxide put off by home appliances and formaldehyde, which is an ingredient in many cleaning solutions. Aloe Vera Aloe Vera is a true must when it comes to keeping your family healthy. It helps get rid of airborne benzene released from paint and some chemical cleaning products. Not only that, the gel within its leaves is perfect for treating minor cuts and burns. What makes this plant even better? While the plant works hard to take care of your home, you have to do minimal to take care of it. No green thumb necessary. Interested in doing more for your indoor air quality?
