If you want to improve your home environment, then you will find these tips for a healthy home very useful.

There are lots of things that can make our homes unhealthy, including many that we donโ€™t even consider.2

Yet with some simple changes, we can improve the quality of our homes.

So here are some tips for a healthy home that youโ€™ll be happy to live in โ€ฆ

1. Fresh Air

One of the easiest tips for a healthy home is to open the windows whenever possible.

This allows fresh air in, ventilates the house, and helps prevent mould (which is definitely not good for your health).

So when the weather permits, open the windows and get rid of the stale air.

And always ventilate your bathroom, which is obviously a damp place.

2. Chemical Care

Have a look in your cupboards, and you may be astonished at just how many chemicals you have in your house.

Itโ€™s worth looking into ways of reducing the presence of chemicals in your house.

For example, avoid the use of fresh air sprays โ€“ try opening windows instead, or making your own sprays by diluting a few drops of essential oil.

3. Home Made Cleaners

Many cleaning products are toxic and should only be used with caution.

Particular examples of this are drain unblockers and oven cleaners, which can be dangerous to breathe in.2

Making your own cleaning products is much healthier, and wonโ€™t harm you, your family or your pets.

4. Clean Regularly

Obviously a clean environment is pleasant and healthy, but donโ€™t overdo it โ€“ this is suspected of causing an increase in allergies, as people are not exposed to germs.

So they fail to build up natural immunity.

Of course, nobody sensible wants to live in squalor, but donโ€™t clean the house obsessively with anti-bacterial products.
