Extend The Life of Flowers with This Two-Step Trick
Keep them vibrant for a few weeks (or longer!)
For those who are fond of displaying fresh blooms around the home, you know the struggle of trying to keep them vibrant. While some florists offer preservative packets, these aren't usually enough to double the vase life of a bouquet.
Don't worry, aside from daily maintenance, you only need one thing to make cut flowers last longer—a can of hairspray. Try this easy hack by following the guide below:
Take out the flowers from the vase to keep leaves from sticking to it. Spray the hairspray on the flowers from several inches away. Do not hold the can too close to the flowers as the force may damage the petals.
Hang the flowers upside down in a well-ventilated area until the hairspray dries. Arrange the flowers as you wish.
RL Tip: Reapply a fresh coat of hairspray every few days or to keep the flowers looking pristine.
