Fresh flowers can really brighten a room, cheer up a friend or show that special someone just how special they really are. Receiving a lovely bouquet delivery or arranging your own fresh blooms from your garden can be a great experience. The problem is that those fresh blooms can only last for so long.
Throwing out a beautiful bunch of flowers is depressing, especially if you find yourself throwing them out just a few days after placing them in your favorite vase. There are a few ways you can prolong the beauty of fresh flowers and as a result prolong your enjoyment of them.
Vinegar is truly nature’s answer to just about every problem. Like bleach, vinegar has strong anti-bacterial properties that can stop bacteria from growing in your vase water. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your vase water before adding your flowers. You will still need to change out the water every few days to maximize the life of the flowers.
Aspirin has been a stand by for fresh flower lovers for a long time. It is a handy substance that most people have right in their cabinet. Simply crush an aspirin and add the powder to the water in your vase before adding your flowers.
Bleach is another great way to prolong the life of your blooms. The strong anti-bacterial properties of bleach help to inhibit bacteria from growing the water of your vase and affecting the health of your flowers. For best results add ¼ teaspoon of bleach to each liter of water.
It is also believed that adding 1 teaspoon of sugar to the bleach water can increase your flowers lifespan. This solution will also keep the water in your vase from turning cloudy which is an annoyance when using a clear vase.
This popular soda also works wonders in the vase. The high sugar content keeps the flowers nourished longer. Because the soda is clear you also won’t have to worry about the water clouding up.
You can use hairspray in addition to the solution you add to your vase. Just stand back a few feet and gently spray the blossoms. The spray preserves the flowers the same way it preserves your hairstyle.
