Sediment and dirt has accumulated on the bottom of the flower vase. You are tortured by the unpleasant odor that appears if you happen to forget about the bouquet. The vase also has a narrow neck. You think it easier to throw it away! Of course, this is not so.
There are at least five easy ways to return the pristine purity of your vase.
- Glass turbidity or deposits caused by hard water can easily run off, if you prepare a solution of 1\2 cup of vinegar and water, and then pour it into the vase. Leave it for 1-2 hours, pour out, and rinse thoroughly. The same solution can be prepared with citric acid.
- Prepare a dense soda solution and tear a newspaper into small pieces. Put everything inside the vase, leave for a couple of hours, shake well, pour out, and rinse with water.
- Pour a little bathroom cleaner (that fights dirt without friction as told in television commercials) into the vase, shake well and thoroughly rinse.
- Take a glass of rice and 1\2 cup baking soda, pour them into the vase, and fill it with warm water. Close the neck with your hand and shake vigorously. The rice will gently remove dirt and mold, and soda will eliminate the smell. Pour out the rice and rinse the vase with hot water.
- Mix 3 tbsp. salt with 1 tbsp. vinegar. Apply the resulting paste with a brush on dirty places in a vase. Leave for 20 minutes. Rinse with hot water and leave to dry.
