Why is bleach good for flowers?
The chlorine in the bleach is beneficial in killing any bacteria that is nestled in the flower stems, your vase or your water. It is also a good idea to add a teaspoon of sugar to your bleach water. The sugar will help feed the flowers, while the bleach protects them from bacteria.
How do you make flowers look good in a vase?
Bleach: Add ¼ teaspoon of bleach to your vase of fresh flowers and they should stay fresh longer, at least that’s what they say. Bleach will keep your water from getting cloudy as well as help fight bacteria.
How do you prolong the life of cut flowers?
Use clippers or shears for woody stems and sharp scissors or knives for other flowers. If possible, cut stems under water. Remove any leaves that would otherwise sit under the waterline in the vase. Leaves rot when submerged, encouraging algae and bacteria in the container and shortening the life of the blooms.
