Use these plants to keep your air clean.
  • The English Ivy is a wonderful plant for an apartment because they thrive in small spaces and require little sunlight. They also absorb formaldehyde, which is one of the most common indoor pollutants.
  • For another plant that’s fit for an apartment, Peace Lillies are a great option because they also purify the air of carcinogen and acetone which is secreted by paints and electronics respectively.
  • Spice up your living room with a Lady Palm to give it a great look as well as clean it from ammonia which can be found in household cleaners and dyes.
