Keeping cut flowers

Got a bouquet of flowers? Keep it looking fresh. First, cut the stems at a 45 degree angle, and get them in water as quickly as you can. Remove all leaves that are below the water level. Replace water before it becomes cloudy and recut the flowers every third or fourth day. Add something to it to delay the growth of bacteria: A copper penny, an aspirin or a few drops of vinegar.
