Make Your Bouquet Last Longer
Cut flowers need a little maintenance now and then to survive. To keep an arrangement fresh and attractive, you should first clean your vase to eliminate harmful bacteria. Scrub it with a mixture of 1 part bleach to 10 parts water; rinse. After you've set the bouquet in the vase, if the water gets cloudy, remove the blooms, scrub the vase again, and replace the flowers.
