For purifying the air in a room, marinade 7 ounces of eucalyptus leaves in white vinegar for 2 weeks. Leave bowls of this all over the room.

hii ronimas its a great tip and really useful as we all need fresh air which is really hard to get these days.where people are are spending thousands using air purifiers,i think this one is going to make them think again.the need for ventilation is interwoven with health and hygiene. well i have one more solution to this.house plants are not only beautiful to have at home,they also help cleanse the air.house plants not only convert carbon dioxide to oxygen but also trap and absorb many pollutants.many of these chemical compounds are released into our air through a process called "off-gassing" and often comes from everyday items present in our homes and office. luckily for us it turns out that some of the best house plants for cleaning our air are also very easy to grow.such as spider plants,peace lily,schefflera,english ivy and a few orchids and bromeliads that are most effective at night.

Great tip Ronimas! Vinegar is cheap and eucalyptus too, you can just get it from the fields... I love when you post these kind of tips that save you money and also are better for the environment than the dangerous chemical ones we buy from the stores.
