Lifehacker explains that a simple aspirin can help you keep your flowers fresh for much longer. You do really need aspirin for this and not a different painkiller like paracetamol or ibuprofen. By adding a crushed aspirin tablet to the water in your vase, the water will remain nice and clean. This is caused by the salicylic acid the painkiller contains. This acid also makes sure that certain bacteria (the ones that are damaging to your flowers) won’t be able to grow in the water.
