Q: What can I do to naturally freshen my house? We've got kids, animals, and lots of activity, but I hate aerosol fresheners like Febreze because I feel like I'm spraying chemicals around my house. Any other good suggestions?

Mandy, we totally hear you. We're not a fan of chemically-laden air fresheners, either. We ourselves have invested in 2 Energy-Star air purifiers that we think make a big difference in the overall air quality of our home. The Blueair air purifier we have has a SmokeStop filter that cuts down on smoke and other strong odors and gases in the home.
