Since I always have fresh-cut flowers on the dining room table for Stacie, I also have to admit that sometimes the water gets a bit stale and stains the ceramic vase. After the grime built up long enough without a way for me to clean it, I determined that I needed a solution.
How to clean a vase
Since I couldn’t fit my hand into the vase without getting it stuck and looking ridiculous, I searched around the house for another option. Immediately I stumbled upon an excellent solution:
A toilet bowl brush
The brush could get down past the tight neck into the base with minimal pressure. Don’t worry, though, I didn’t use the dirty brush. I went to Ikea (on an already planned trip) and bought a $0.99 toilet bowl brush.
Oh, you might want to mark the brush as “For Vases” so you don’t accidentally use it for the wrong porcelain 🙂
