Houseplants as Air Fresheners
Instead of buying and using toxic air fresheners that are plugged in and continuously draw on your electricity, use houseplants to make the air in your home more pleasant. Houseplants are known to remove unpleasant substances from the air, and can even freshen the smell in your home.
Certain houseplants have been known to help counteract the smell of smoke, even the dreaded cigarette smoke. They can efficiently mask many other unpleasant odors as well. Plants let out water vapor which absorb the air and its toxins and then suck it back in with a pump-like action. It then transforms it into nourishment for the plant to use.
