When you place a gorgeous arrangement of cut flowers on your office desk or dining room table, you want the essence of its beauty to last. The floral experts at Kitty’s Flowers understand the importance of keeping your bouquet fresh and crisp.
When you become the proud owner of a fabulous arrangement like our Elegant Expressions, full of pink roses and blue hydrangea, you want it to endure. Here are some household items that, when used properly, will make your arrangement last.
- Aspirin: Just like your grandmother taught you, a crushed aspirin in your vase water before adding flowers will keep them crisp and fresh longer.
- Bleach: ¼ teaspoon of bleach in a quart of vase water will kill harmful bacteria, improving longevity.
- Pennies: The acid from the copper in pennies is enough to neutralize the bacteria growing in vase water and maintain original freshness for weeks.
- Sugar: 3 tablespoons of sugar along with 2 tablespoons of white vinegar dissolved in a quart of warm water will nourish growth while inhibiting bacterial growth.
