May is Clean Air Month, so that means it’s time to start looking more closely at the choices you make in every room in your house.
Specifically, it’s your responsibility to keep the air in your baby’s nursery as clean as possible. Use this month to make some simple clean air changes in your child’s room.
1. Clean Humidifiers Regularly
If you use a humidifier, such as a Crane USA humidifier, in your baby’s nursery to help relieve their congestion, be sure to clean it regularly. If you don’t change the water, the humidifier can harbor bacteria, which can pollute the air in your nursery.
2. Purchase a Non-Toxic Mattress
Many conventional crib mattresses contain materials that contribute to off-gassing, such as flame retardants and polyurethane foam. Pick a mattress such as the Lullaby Earth Healthy Support Crib Mattress. It’s non-toxic and contains no flame retardants, so it will not off-gas harmful chemicals into your child’s nursery.
3. Add Purifying Plants
Plants add a beautiful natural element to your baby’s nursery and are also great agents for cleaning the air. There are a number of plants proven to purify the air, such as Gerbera Daisies and Lavender. Plants add some color to your kid’s room and help them breathe a big breath of fresh air.
4. Choose Natural and Non-Toxic Rugs
Rugs can be a great addition to your baby’s nursery, adding a little personality to the space. When choosing this accent piece, pick a non-toxic option as to not bring air pollutants into your baby’s space. Lorena Canals rugs are perfect for any nursery and use raw materials and natural dyes.
