Dish soap residue in a vase is your fresh flowers' worst enemy.
Do you know that if you place your vases in a dishwasher or even wash them by hand, you are adding to the problem of placing residue inside the vases.
Dish soap residue within the vase shortens the live span of Fresh flowers by over 1/2 their normal life span of 7 to 10 days.
There is a little trick that you can use to extend the life of your fresh cut flowers back to their original life span by removing the soap residue from your vases. The trick is to use a few drops of bleach mixed with water, swirl this mixture around inside the vase and rinse with tepid water. No need to dry the vase, just add in your water, fresh flowers and voila, your flowers will last longer for your enjoyment.
If you need some fresh flowers for that vase or are need of Poinsettias or Wreaths for the holidays, give my company a call.
