1. House plantsIntroduce house plants. They work as natural air purifiers and are an excellent way to reduce toxins within the house. The best part about indoor plants is that they not only look good but also clean up the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and chemicals that are present in the air and convert it into oxygen. Some plants that are known for their air purifying abilities include the spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum), English ivy (Hedera helix), Boston fern (Nephrolepis exaltata), areca palm (Dypsis lutescens) and peace lily (Spathiphyllum wallisii).Find out what plants are best suited for Indian homes
