We’ve taken today’s hack from our latest collaboration with Yahoo and Experian. We have created some money saving life hacks for their Inspiring Money Stories campaign. This one is all about making cut flowers last longer.
To keep cut flowers looking fresher for longer, drop a penny into the bottom of the vase. The copper in the coin works as a water acidifier, which helps to prevent fungus or bacteria from forming and turning the water bad. If possible, use a penny made before 1982 as they contain higher levels of copper that newer coins.
We do life hacks every Monday – have you got a good one?
