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.

I had said that the tip of the day was lame at best. I think this was the laziest tip I have ever seen! I mean wash the vase and make sure your water is kept clean? Like, duh?!?!? I thought this was just common sense??? How about a concoction of sugar and vinegar? Anybody research this?
