One of my plans for this year is to make our home a lot more, well, home-y. This plan includes tidying up {I mean, seriously, you won’t believe how much clutter a small family can make and a tiny home can hold!}, getting rid of unnecessary items around the home, and yes, purifying the air we breathe.

Although I find it most fortunate that it has been awhile since my little man suffer from asthma, I have long suspected that he might just also be suffering from allergic rhinitis. Waking up to sniffles and sneezing is a daily occurrence and he would regularly suffer from dry itchy throat, too. I know too well that these conditions are not only brought by the change in the weather, but also by the unseen airborne threats that could be lurking in corners of our home.

This is when I set out to make sure that we breathe only clean air at home. Upon reading, here are a few things I chanced upon that can effectively help clean the air at home: tips and tricks, home and garden, health, homemaking, home, home improvement, cleaning at home

  • Improved Ventilation ~ Opening windows and installing vents in the kitchen or the loo will work wonders in reducing moisture at home which helps in developing mold and mildew. Exhaust fans also help take away air pollutants inside the home.
  • House Plants ~ Various indoor plant varieties can help counter the ill effects of pollutants by helping to rejuvenate and purify the air. Some of the plants you can add as air purifiers at home include aloe vera, snake plant, and spider plant. tips and tricks, home and garden, health, homemaking, home, home improvement, cleaning at home
  • Himalayan Salt Lamps ~ I have been meaning to get a Himalayan salt lamp ever since I read about its numerous benefits late last year. These lamps help reduce symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis, as well as clear the air of pathogens and allergens. It even aids in having a good night’s sleep. I have found an online shop on Facebook that sells authentic Himalayan salt lamps and I am just saving enough so I can buy one for our home. tips and tricks, home and garden, health, homemaking, home, home improvement, cleaning at home
