Is it just us or does everything feel stale when you spend so much time in your home?

A lack of airflow in your home, according to the EPA, can cause indoor air pollution to build up and exacerbate health problems such as asthma and allergies. Your furniture, the materials in your walls and your carpet can also contain toxins. So it’s worth finding a way to filter the air in your house.

Before we invested in an expensive air purifier, we thought we’d try a few houseplants first – they’re a lot cheaper – and look a lot nicer. And while plants may not have the power of industrial machines, NASA recommends some to get rid of the toxins in your air.

Plants can absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen into the air and remove pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichlorethylene, according to the NASA study on air pollution, which aims to find ways to purify air in closed space stations. These chemicals can cause skin, ear, eye, nose and throat irritation, as well as some cancers, according to the EPA.

The study suggests that at least one plant per 100 square feet can effectively purify the air. So fill up your space with these eight NASA hand-picked detox plants to purify the air in your home.

This plant is ideal for your bedroom and unique in its ability to release oxygen at night. Snake plants can also produce enough oxygen in an airtight room for people to breathe normally. It is one of the best plants to filter the air from formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, toluene and trichlorethylene. Water it about once a week, let the soil dry between waterings, and keep it by a window.

If you are someone who loves flowers in the house, this is a great option for you. A peace lily produces fragrant flowers all summer long and effectively removes ammonia, formaldehyde, trichlorobenzene and benzene from the air. It grows best in shady areas and with moist soil. However, be careful as this plant can be poisonous if eaten by children or pets.

This drought-tolerant plant is good for beginners. It thrives in the light. Periodically wipe the underside of the sheets with a damp cloth to ensure that your air can be filtered properly. Place it in a partially shaded area and spray the floor with room temperature water instead of soaking it. Be careful, it is not pet friendly.
