I’m so happy to find this! Are you like me and end up throwing away a lot of food because you’re not sure which need to be stored dry so they don’t rot versus moist so they don’t  dry out? Well, here’s a great guide to follow to extend the life of your produce.

Air Purifying House Plants – Who Knew?

1. Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldehyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.

2. Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldehyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldehyde from the air.

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.

6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.

Pet owners: Always check that flowers,  plants, essential oils, candles, etc. are not toxic to your pets. They are VERY sensitive.
