When you get up in the morning, open the windows to let in some fresh air to lower concentrations of toxic chemicals and carbon monoxide in your home. Just don't forget to close them when you leave for work or school. A word of caution: if you suffer from seasonal allergies, don't do this or you'll find your house infested with the allergens that make you miserable.
Get into the routine of cleaning your home regularly. In addition to a nice smelling, clean home, you'll get better quality air. Dust, mop, and vacuum at least once a week to see this improvement.
Rather than purchasing synthetic air fresheners to cover up odors in your home, use natural products like baking soda, lemon slices or flesh flowers and avoid releasing chemicals into your home's air.
Keep the humidity in your home between 30 and 50 percent to keep down the growth of mold and amount of dust mites in the air. Dehumidifiers can help with this, but just checking for water leaks and having them repaired will also help tremendously.
Finally, houseplants are a great way to bring the outdoors in! Not only do they look and smell great, they remove pollutants from the air.
