Keeping your home ventilated by opening the windows for a minimum of 15 minutes a day is a free and simple way to circulate the air and reduce the amount of toxins inside.

2. Leave your shoes outside or in a specific area

Your shoes can track more than just dirt into the house. The shoes you wear outside can also bring harmful bacteria, toxins and chemicals indoors so you don't want to wear your outdoor shoes throughout your home. Begin by assigning a designative area just inside the entryway at the front of the house to keep them.

3. Consider your dry cleaning

Dry cleaning also brings extra chemicals into your life. With dry cleaning, your "clean" clothes are covered in chemicals, which get on you the next time you put them on. Over 95% of UK dry cleaners use perchloroethylene, and this chemical can affect allergy and asthma patients. It can also lead to headaches and dizziness in large amounts. Try to avoid dry cleaning or use natural or green dry cleaner services that don't use perchloroethylene.

4. Replace your cleaning supplies.

Do you have an entire cabinet filled with cleaning supplies and detergents? How many chemicals are in these supplies, and do you know how they affect your health? To detox, try green or natural cleaning supplies.

* You can also make your own cleaning supplies using white vinegar, baking soda, a squeeze of lemon and other natural ingredients. You can find multiple recipes online for natural DIY cleaners that only require a few everyday household ingredients.

5. Replace your personal care items
