    Spray air fresheners release several chemicals into your living space/office space. But there are several methods to help clean up your homes air; simply by just placing a plant or two in the home can help clean up the air and circulate some clean out through the space, opening the windows once and awhile can help circulate the air, especially when you feel that it feels stuffy. Keep your home well ventilated!!

    • lauryl methacrylate
    • methoxychlor
    • methylene chloride
