Over the last 100 years, synthetic materials and chemicals used in manufacturing our home furnishings and cleaning products have caused numerous allergies and health issues. Once in your home, these chemicals release noxious gases into your home environment.
You know what “new car smell” is, well this is “new furniture” smell! That odor is the chemicals reacting with the oxygen in your air. Do you know that used car dealers actually spray chemicals in used cars to give them that “new car smell”? As a side note on this topic, food manufacturers lace our foods with additives to trick our senses of smell and taste into thinking they are getting something good to eat. More on this on my food page.
