Many researchers have proved that indoor air can be as much as 10 times more polluted than the outdoor air. This happens due to the formaldehyde and benzene released by plastic, rags, furniture and paints. They trigger health issues like a headache, fatigue, wheezing, etc. Many people buy the air purifiers to cleanse and detox the home environment but they are quite expensive and not all can afford it or would want to go for it.
There are many natural ways to detoxify your home. Some of them are given below:
When Bamboo is baked at ultra-high temperature, it turns into absorbent charcoal. This charcoal becomes a sort of magnet for the toxins in the environment and absorbs harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia. People in Korea, China and Japan have been using it for a long time.

When salt crystals are heated by the low wattage bulb, its crystals mix into the air and stick to the impurities, weighing them down so you do not inhale them. It also neutralises the pollutants and toxins and is a good medium for light therapy too.
