NASA research proves that plants in the home and office clear pollutants. The same plants that clean the air in the space station also can be used in your bungalow. They purify the air of paint fumes, tobacco smoke, detergents, inks, adhesives, gasoline fumes and more. Many of these air borne pollutants are derived from carpets, fireplaces, household cleaners, electronics, furniture and building materials.
