Steps On How To Clean A Flower Vase
1. Pour White Distilled Vinegar in the vase and leave it about ¾ full. Shake it vigorously and let it sit for at least one hour. Rinse and repeat until the acid in the vinegar has removed the mineral deposit.
2. Efferdent, Polident or Alka-Seltzer Tablets are usually used to clean dentures but they are a secret trick in cleaning hard to reach areas of a vase with a mineral deposit of lime.
3. For a vase that is shaped with a curve or an angle that is hard to reach, this trick is going to sound odd but it works....Make sure the vase isn’t made of a light, delicate glass and you have already tried both the Vinegar and Efferdent methods. Get some aquarium gravel and put a good amount into the vase. Add water and shake rigorously. The gravel is soft enough to not scratch the glass but hard enough to scrub the angles of the vase.
4. Dry your vase and store it for your Spring Bouquets!
Isn’t the bow that came with your Valentine’s bouquet a lovely addition?

Well, now you know the trick in keeping your flower vases clean and ready for the next time!
