Flowers are a beautiful gift to receive. At some time in our lives, we all have received a bunch of flowers. As a florist having clean vases is just as important as having fresh flowers to sell. 

No matter how new the flowers are, if the vase or vessel you use to display the flowers is not clean, the flowers will not last long. Here are a few tips to follow if you want to enjoy your beautiful fresh flowers for a long time. 

To display flowers, you need to store the flowers in clean waters and some vessels. To have a clean vase, here are a few options on how to clean a vase to store fresh flowers.

To clean a vase, Choose a vase to display fresh flowers. Pour some bleach in the vase and use a brush to clean the vase. Use the brush to clean all the surfaces in the vase a few times. 

If there are decaying leaves and petals in the vase, remove everything. Rinse the vase two to three times, put water in the vase, and you are ready to display your flowers.

The best way to disinfect a vase is by using bleach, but if you do not have any bleach, another form of how to clean a vase to display flowers is to use soap. Pour some soap in the vase. Use a brush or a sponge to clean every inch of the inside of the vase. Rinse the vase a few times to get all the soap out of the vase. Put warm water in the vase and display the flowers.

Change the water after a few days and clean the vase again, and your flowers will last a few days longer. Repeat the cleaning steps every time you use your vase, and your bouquets will last a long time.
