After MrCc brought me flowers 2 weeks ago and the water went really bad I washed everything but again the day after the water was stinking so I decided to google thinking there must be a way to stop the stinking water! Well the answer was bleach! So I tried it and it actually worked no more stinky water and the flowers lasted ages, mr cc brought me daffodils on saturday so added bleach and no stinky water yet!
The reason is the bleach stops bacteria growing in the water, it does change the bottoms to white but doesnt damage the flowers in any other way..
Thought it was worth sharing it makes your flowers last longer!

I would never have thought of adding bleach, I would have assumed the flowers would die. I will try it next time though CC.
