7 Tips For Making Fresh Cut Flowers Last Longer

 

1. Pour about ¼ cup of clear soda into the water in a vase full of cut flowers. The sugar in the soda will make the blossoms last longer.

2. Just as it preserves your hairstyle, a spritz of hair spray can help your cut flowers look fresh longer.

3. Mix 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons sugar with the vase water before adding the flowers.

4. Add a few drops of vodka (or any clear spirit) to the vase water for antibacterial action along with 1 teaspoon sugar.

5. Put a crushed aspirin in the water before adding your flowers.

6. Freshly cut flowers will last longer if you add ¼ teaspoon bleach per quart (1 liter) of vase water.

7. Your flowers will last longer if you add a copper penny and a cube of sugar to the vase water.
