40. Spider plant

Don’t let the name fool you – this common houseplant won’t actually fill your home with arachnids. Instead, its spiky green leaves will remove formaldehyde from your house, leaving you with cleaner air. The spider plant doesn’t take much looking after, either, as it doesn’t need direct sunlight. Just remember to water it every now and then.
