Prolonging the life of fresh flowers can be easily done by sprinmkling them with Floralife, a longevity agent that usually comes with the flowers, however if yours did not, or if you spill the water and need to change it you do have options.

Firstly make sure that you cut the stem of the flowers when you receive them, cutting on a slant, or diagonally,(this is so they have a longer area through which to absorb water. and then, you can offer the same type longevity to your cut flowers by using about 2 teaspoons of a medicinal type mouthwash, such as Listerine, to a gallon of water and use that to fill your vases.
