There is smoke everywhere in the air, You can not even see the sun or the mountains. If you have issues with smoke in your home. Fill a pot with water and add half a box of baking soda. It will neutralize the air. Not purify. You can also do this in a crock pot.

It has to be so hard to breathe with all that smoke. So glad you have a way to purify the air indoors.

I have asthma. Which has not bothered me since we moved here so I am being extra careful.

@jstory07 Thank you. Don't smoke detectors take care of smoke?

Smoke detectors are only going to tell you if you have a fire inside of your house they do not get rid of the smoke smell.

isn't the world getting fragile? Forest fires, storms, tornadoes, all of this is bad.
