Breathing in fumes of many aerosol cleaners can irritate the lungs, leading to serious health risks for people with pre-existing heart or respiratory conditions. Many of the aerosol air fresheners on the market also contain toxic chemicals, which can damage the skin and eyes. Fortunately, homemade solutions containing a few simple ingredients pose no known health risks. Try out these ideas to keep your home smelling fresh, without the harsh chemicals:
Beeswax candles, salt lamps and bamboo charcoal might help eliminate odors by purifying the air.
Stovetop potpourri and enzyme-based air fresheners can also remove smells without hurting indoor air quality.
For tough-to-eliminate smells such as cigarette smoke, try an air purifier and a deep cleaning.
Clean with baking soda for a natural way to remove dirt, and remove odors.
Natural ingredients such as essential oils, lemon juice and lavender can add freshness to any room.
