Breath of fresh air

(NC)-When it comes to cleaning products, cleanliness and toxicity have become synonymous, but today's classic home care products have finally been exposed for what they are - dangerous. Traditional cleaners boast health and cleanliness when in reality they have been blamed for contributing to a slew of health problems while destroying "good bacteria" and making us more susceptible to illness.

It's time to change the way we clean our homes. Harsh chemicals and dangerous fumes impact our overall health, and there are many natural solutions that can take care of whatever ails the cleanliness of your home. Here are some tips to help bring natural solutions to your home:

• According to a survey, 71 per cent of the population living with smokers is concerned about indoor air pollutants caused by cigarettes - instead of adding more by spraying air fresheners and chemical deodorizers, try using baking soda boxes in strategic locations.

• When polled, 45 per cent of pet owners are concerned about how their furry friends can negatively affect air quality. While vacuuming regularly helps, customizable air filters like the Bionaire AER1 System can improve and reduce problematic odors quickly and safely without having to make Fido spend the night outside.

• If you're an at-home chef who enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, you know it is sometimes challenging to keep the colorful aroma where it belongs. Essential oils and diffusers help to neutralize overwhelming scents and replace them with inviting ones like cinnamon or lavender.
