Detox your property with these tips.

In today’s society, detoxing is more than just drinking green juices and apple cider vinegar. It’s more about a holistic approach to rid your life of things you don’t need. We all know that the state of our home can impact our mental health, which is why it can be beneficial to detox your home environment. Here are a few easy ways to get started.


Marie Kondo teaches us to tidy up by removing any item that does not spark joy. Set aside a day to declutter your wardrobe, cupboards, and drawers by donating or throwing away items that do not make you happy and that you don’t use.

Add greenery

Plants are a great way to breathe new life into a property (quite literally)! Plants such as English ivy, peace lily, and aloe vera detox the air and remove harmful pollutants, making your air cleaner to breathe.

Use natural cleaners

Air quality can be impacted by activities like washing clothes with detergent pods, which can release chemicals into the air. Even unscented products and detergents have ingredients that can cause respiratory issues. Use gentle, sulphate-free, fragrance-free, and plant-based detergents and products. Homemade cleaners, such as vinegar, water, and baking soda, are all you need to do the trick.

Choose an eco-friendly mattress

What we sleep on can have a direct impact on our health and happiness. Since you spend anywhere from six to eight hours in bed a day, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re not breathing in harmful chemicals. Make sure your mattress is chemical-free or opt for an eco-friendly one by asking what the mattress is made of, and what chemicals may be on it.
