We spend so much of our time in our man caves and the air in them can be extremely toxic. Anything we can do to reduce our toxic load from textiles is worth it. NASA actually did a study that concluded that house plants can purify and rejuvenate air within our houses and workplaces. They safeguard us against any side effects connected with many prevalent toxins from textiles such as formaldehyde, ammonia and also benzene. I have an areca palm, boston fern and peace lillies in my house. The Boston Fern is the hardest to care for because I live in a dry climate but I keep it alive. The Areca Palm is a humidifier, so it actually maintains moisture throughout dry periods as well as continually removing chemical toxins from your air!
