Fresh flowers brighten up the home and leave a pleasent smell for days, the tough part is cleaning your vases after the flowers have died. A bottle brush will get into those narrow openings, in which case warm soapy water will be all the accompaniment you need. If you don’t have one, or it isn’t long enough, try popping a couple of denture tablets into a vase of water and leaving overnight, then rinsing the next day.
For more stubborn marks, fill your vase with some vinegar and a handful of dry rice, and give it a good swirl around. Leave it overnight, then empty and rinse in warm soapy water the next day.
