Flower Power.

This Sparked Me!

When you have fresh cut flowers about the house, you want to keep them as long as possible. I find using lemonade, Sparkling water, or soda -even cola- keeps them going longer. Try an asprin in the water as an alternative. No, not for you! for the flowers! It really works ! emoticon

    You can also use a pinch of sugar as well, but not a sugar substitute. Good luck.

    Thanks for the info, will try it the next time I get flowers. They always seem to go quickly.
