For you allergy sufferers,  keeping the air clean in your home or office can be a headache. Some sprays and air fresheners can cause the annoying reaction of sneezing, making these items a waste of time and money.

But, as always, nature has a natural cure for cleaning the air of pollutants and toxins in the air that won’t send you running for Kleenex.

Make your houseplants do double-duty by putting these top 10 air purifying plants to work:

1. Areca Palm

2. Lady Palm

3. Bamboo Palm

4. Rubber Plant

5. Dracaena

6. English Ivy

7. Dwarf Date Palm

8. Ficus

9. Boston Fern

10. Peace Lily

Place one plant in a space, allowing for 10 square yards of floor space for room with 8 to 9 foot ceilings. To get good air quality in a room, 2 or 3 plants will do the trick.

You can find these plants at your local nursery and even some grocery stores have them in stock. Heart your houseplants and they’ll heart you!
