I love roses and have antique roses in my garden. When you receive a bouquet of roses, you want to keep it fresh as long as you can. Here's how to do it. Cut the underside of the stems and remove any leaves that are below the waterline. Put them in a vase with warm water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 3 tablespoons of sugar per liter of water. – Heloise
Dear Heloise: It has to be my good Dutch blood. The bugs love me. A baking soda paste will help, but if it dries out it will get messy. The perfect solution? Dab it with vinegar. It really helps. – Jacob Groothof, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Jacob, yes, vinegar is versatile and versatile. White household vinegar helps against itching from insect bites, pain from wasp stings and skin irritations.
Vinegar is indispensable in every household! There are so many ways to use it for cleaning, deodorizing, and cooking, so I've put together a six-page booklet of vinegar uses that you can find on www.Heloise.com or by sending $ 5 plus a long, addressed, postage paid (75 cents ) Envelope to: Heloise / Vinegar, PO Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. FYI, you can wipe mini blinds with a mixture of half water and half vinegar to remove grease and dust. – Heloise
