2. Snake Plants absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldehyde.

3. Areca Palms are one of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plants are great indoor plants for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldehyde from air.

5. The Peace Lily could be called the “clean-all”. They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from air as well. A somewhat toxic plant to pets however, so keep this one on a shelf or out of reach altogether.
