Life is full of simple pleasures like the appearance of fresh and enchanting flowers in your home. Without a doubt, nothing brightens up a room like the appearance of a vase full of colorful, beautiful blooms. Flowers add beauty and sweetness to your home decor. More so, they connect with us on a personal level. They make us feel different feelings; they are the reason behind our happy moments and dreamy qualities. Some of you might be in love with flowers, whereas some might have them just for their aesthetic value.

In this world of fast-paced schedules and a hectic urban environment, we often forget to take the small steps (which can make the biggest difference) in making our lives a little easier. Take cleaning your glass vase as an example. If you don’t clean it regularly, you’ll soon find yourself with yellow stains and a dull, dirty-looking vase that has been a part of your décor for ever so long. Looking for the best ways to clean a glass flower vase? Well, you have come to the right place!

Cloudiness in Vase: Why Does it Happen?

Have you ever come home from a day of work to find your vase is looking not so great? Cloudy and dirty? Vases with hard water tend to become cloudy since hard water contains calcium and other minerals. Leaving calcium deposits on the glass leaves the glass looking foggy when the water is not changed.

The haze will become more difficult to remove over time as residues from mineral deposits and bacteria accumulate. When glass vases are washed in the dishwasher, they can also cloud due to etching. Keep your vase sparkling by cleaning it by hand every time you use it.

4 Methods to Clean Glass Vases

Baking Soda and Vinegar

  1. Water should be filled in your vase.
  2. Put 2 tablespoons baking soda and 2 tablespoons white vinegar into the mix.
  3. The stains can be loosened by letting the mixture sit for two to four hours after it begins to fizz.
  4. Then, you can use a bottle brush or a soft cloth to remove the mineral deposits.
  5. To finish, use warm water to rinse the vase.
  6. To dry it, pat it down with a clean cloth or let it air dry.

Vinegar and Salt

  1. You can make a solution to clean your vase by mixing 1 tablespoon of salt with white vinegar until it becomes a paste-like consistency
  2. Once the paste reaches the right consistency, rub it all over the vase, especially where dirt has been deposited.
  3. You should be able to clean your vase after about 10 minutes of working with the paste. Allow the paste to work its magic, then wipe it off – you should see a sparkling clean vase afterward!

Denture Tablets

  1. Start by filling the vase with water and adding one or two denture tablets.
  2. There will be a fizzing sound as the mixture begins to fizz. This is the time to set the vase aside to sit and fizz overnight.
  3. Mixtures should be poured into a sink drain in the morning after giving the vase a good shake.
  4. The vase should then be washed and rinsed thoroughly.
  5. Use a soft and clean cloth to pat them or let them air dry naturally.

Alka Seltzer

If your hand or sponge can’t fit in the vase, then this simple method is for you!

  2. Put 1 or 2 Alka seltzer tablets then let it take care of the rest and do the work.
