      Especially the part of : “Over four million people clean for a living and on average Americans spend 30 minutes per day cleaning,” must me studied some more is what I think. In Europe a lot of test concerning clear air are done with better results every year. Alsways interesting how others think about this.

      Interesting article and good tips. Thanks. You mentioned air fresheners. I think air fresheners are one of the worst offenders of indoor air quality. I've read quite a few articles from reliable sources on the pollutants, the toxic chemicals and carcinogens in many of them, and these pollutants are being released continuously. Some air fresheners are actually designed to deaden our sense of smell. Scary stuff.
