The chemicals we use in the home contribute significantly to poor indoor air quality. Here are 4 tips to take control of the chemicals in the air:
1. Get rid of products you no longer need, such as old paint cans and other open and half used toxic chemicals and poisons.
2. Opened bottles and jars of cleaning products should be contained in an airtight bin.
3. Consider using less toxic and more environmentally friendly cleaning products.
4. Dry-cleaned clothing spews chemicals into the air. If possible, remove the plastic and hang the stack of dry-cleaning outside for a few hours before bringing it into the house.
