Vase Upkeep

Martha Stewart Living, February 2004

Cut flowers, naturally, need a little maintenance now and then to survive. To keep an arrangement fresh, you should clean your vase with a bleach solution to eliminate harmful bacteria. Before filling a vase, scrub it with a mixture of 1 part bleach to 10 parts water; rinse. Later, if the water gets cloudy, remove the blooms, scrub the vase again, and replace the bouquet.
