And if you want a fresh laundry smell, try putting a few drops of essential oil like lavender onto a dry washcloth and tossing it in with your clothes. And now, on to flowers. You can keep your blossoms fresher for much longer by simply adding a few household ingredients to your water. Take two tablespoons white vinegar, and two tablespoons sugar, mix them into one quart of warm water, and there you go. Instant flower preservative. And considering some florists can charge up to $15 for a bottle, this solution will also preserve your budget. So what are you waiting for?
