Activated charcoal is a super absorber of toxins, chemicals and odors. It’s made from all-natural materials like coconut husk, and it’s affordable, too! While there are myriad uses for it for DIY beauty recipes, you can also use it when doing household tasks at home. When you can’t open your windows to ventilate a room when painting, for example, just place a large bowl of activated charcoal in the middle of the room. It’ll absorb odors and other volatile organic compounds in the air.
