Household Chemicals
There are a host of countless common household chemicals that create havoc when it comes to our indoor air quality.

Tips on Chemical-Free Air
Switch to safe, natural cleaning products that fully disclose all ingredients.
If you must store a noxious chemical, make sure it is an airtight container, safely away from children and pets.
Open the windows when you clean to allow the draft to remove contaminants from the air.
