Here's to the Indoors

Now that its fall and we are spending more time indoor's, we have been "nosing" around looking at our everyday items with an inquiring mind. Do they have potential for toxic off-gas (not including family members and dogs!), are they really necessary and is there an viable alternative. Our candles e-bulletin shows that a simple pleasure may have ill effects but that there are many alternatives. So ask yourself some questions - what about the pot you make your soup in or the air freshener used to combat wet boot smell?

Great article on Candles! It's one of my pet peeves that it is so difficult to find unscented candles, but you gave me some new ideas for where to look. Here's a link to an article that gives you another good reason to burn only "pure" candles -- the cheap ones are often responsible for nasty black stains on your carpets where baseboards meet the floor!
