Home Grown: Clearing the Air With Houseplants

Houseplants certainly add to a home’s d├ęcor, but they can also purify indoor air.

“This is an area that’s been largely ignored, and the health issues are potentially astronomical,” says University of Georgia horticulturist Stanley Kays. “We spend as much as 90 percent of our time indoors breathing indoor air that often contains a diverse range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), many of which are toxic.”

House plants can absorb those VOCs. To determine the best air-purifying houseplants, researchers at the University of Georgia evaluated 32 plant species.  Of those tested, purple waffle plant (Hemigraphis alternata) best removed VOCs from the air.

Beard Lube from Carrollton, Texas

Now available in Health & Beauty:
Beard Lube Conditioning Shave from Carrollton, Texas.

Unlike whipped-cream style foams and gels, this is a pre-shave oil, shave cream and skin conditioner, all in one.

The end result is an easier, smoother shave, and less razor burn.

Beard Lube's see-through texture helps prevent nicks and cuts, and makes it easier to shave around the line of facial hair, such as sideburns or a mustache. Plus, it And, won't clog razors, as it's super light and rinses easily.

Home Grown: Alternative Evergreens

Just a handful of species make up the majority of evergreens planted.  This lack of diversity is starting to be a real problem in areas where diseases are decimating both Scotch pine and Austrian pine, the two most commonly planted pine trees of the last 50 years. Fortunately, there are several less-common types of evergreens to consider:

Concolor Fir (Abies concolor): Graceful, soft, silvery-blue foliage makes it a nice alternative to Colorado spruce. Grows to 70 feet tall by 40 feet wide.

Most serious gardeners would much rather receive one high-quality garden tool than a bunch of cheap ones that won’t last a year. And please don’t give an adult a set of child-size tools.
