35. Swap out vinyl shower curtains for washable nylon or polyester ones. Vinyl can contain phthalates, which may be hazardous to reproductive health. Similar to shown here: Nylon Hotel Shower Curtain ($20; restorationhardware.com).

36. Avoid chemical grout cleaners. Make a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide instead, and let it sit on grout for 30 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.

37. Install a whole-house water filter to reduce exposure to airborne chlorine while you're showering. Or try a filtered showerhead, such as Aquasana's Shower Filtration System ($85; aquasana.com).
