If you’re looking for a way to make your cut flowers bloom vibrantly and stay fresh for a few more days, try one of these tips that use household ingredients to make your flowers last longer.
Don’t throw away those last drops of fizzy drink! Pour about 1/4 cup into the water in a vase full of cut flowers. The sugar in the soft drink will make the blossoms last longer. Note: If you have a clear vase and want the water to remain clear, use a clear soft drink, like Sprite or 7-Up.
Just as it preserves your hairstyle, a spritz of hair spray can help your cut flowers look fresh longer. Stand 30cm from the bouquet and give them a quick spray, just on the undersides of the leaves and petals.
