Improve your Indoor Air Quality

 Indoor Air Pollution is a serious issue. So often people only speak about outdoor pollution forgetting about indoor pollution.  

Do you want cleaner indoor air?

If so ...... check out these easy ways to make your indoor cleaner and fresher.

1. Use only green cleaning products. Make your own - below are a few simple cleaning recipes.
2. Change your furnace filter every month.
3. If you have carpet - vacuum daily. 
4. Make sure to have a Radon detector in your home. A Radon detector is as important as house fire alarms.
5. Do not allow smoking in your home.
6. Keep humidity levels at the correct level of humidity.  You can purchase a humidly level gauge at many local department stores - they are inexpensive and worth every penny. A properly humid home also saves on heating cost.

All Purpose Cleaner
2 cup of water
1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol
5 Tbsp. Dawn dish soap 

Mix together and place in a reusable spray bottle

Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner
In your toilet bowl sprinkle with baking soda.  Then sprinkle with vinegar - Allow to soak for at least 35 minutes then scrub with toilet brush

Furniture Polish
1/2 Cup of Olive Oil
1/2 Cup of White Distilled Vinegar
I like Orange Essential Oil - add about 1 teaspoon
(you can add whatever essential oil scent you like)
Shake Really Good!
Put in a reusable spray bottle. 
Spray on wood - rub into the wood - polish
