5 hacks to keep your flowers looking fresh even after a week!


A fresh flower deliveryis the key for adding colour, freshness and prettiness to one’s space. Whether you are at work or at home, being surrounded by flowers is bound to make you feel good through the day as flowers are also known to have therapeutic qualities. But what happens a few days or even a week after the flowers have been snipped and placed in the various corners of your space? They begin to wither away and the petals begin to show rust hued edges, thus taking away the scent and the colour. Here are 5 quick hacks to help you keep the flowers fresh even a week later!

1. Soda

If you are about to throw out those cans of soda or bottles that still have a few drops of the carbonated goodness, then you need to stop. These last drops can be poured into the flower arrangement or vase. The sugar content will help the flowers last longer and it will delay the withering process. If you are using a clear vase, then you can turn to some clear soda. You should ensure that the water is changed regularly to avoid a cloudy look in the vase.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar has been hailed as the new wonder ingredient and it can also help keep your flowers fresh. All you need to do is add 2 teaspoons of sugar to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Add this concoction to your floral arrangement and watch as the freshness continues to bloom! Ensure that the water is changed every few days so that the cloudy appearance does not mar the look and there is a fresh dose of the vinegar mix to keep your flowers fresh.

3. Aspirin

If you thought aspirin is only good for headaches, you need to think again! You can crush a few tablets of aspirin and add the granules to the vase or bowl holding the flowers. This is bound to keep the flowers looking fresh even after a week. Here too, you need to change the water regularly.

4. Squeeze and Release

This hack is especially helpful when it comes to roses. All you have to do is squeeze the space where the petals meet the stem, and then release. This little exercise keeps the oxygen flowing for longer so that the flowers remain fresh. It ensures that the roses do not wilt quickly. Also, ensure that you trim the stems underwater before placing in a vase. This will also keep the flowers fresher for a longer period.

5. Prevent Direct Exposure to Sunlight

Keeping flowers away from a direct source of light and sunlight can help keep them fresh for a longer period of time too. Try not to place the flowers right next to a window.
