You can bake your house before mnivog in to help release some of the formaldehyde. You do this by turning up the heat as high as it will go and leave it that way for around 5 days (stay somewhere else while doing this). Then open all the windows for a couple of days to air out the house. It's even more effective if you can air it out on a windy day. In new houses you can really notice a big difference. When I did mine I was only able to bake it for 3 days, but even that was enough to get rid of a lot of the new house smell. Another thing to be careful of in personal care ingredients are formaldehyde donors. Many products have formaldehyde donors in them, but you won't find them on the ingredient list because they aren't ingredients that have been added. They are by products of the manufacturing process. The most common one is 1,4 dioxane. The Organic Consumers Union has a lot of great info on this and a list of products that contain it.
