4. Chinese Evergreen

5. Spider Plant
A test done by NASA revealed that the spider plant is highly effective in removing chemical formaldehyde in the air. Formaldehyde is a potentially cancer-causing chemical found in common household items such as adhesives used in some composite wood products, some paints and lacquers. Moreover, spider plants also absorb odours and sustain oxygen levels in the air, making it especially great for people with dust allergies.
