We have a real Christmas
tree. I love opening the door and smelling the fresh pine scent that fills the living room. I wouldn't give up using real trees, but I am tired of their short life (mainly cleaning up all the needles!). The challenge: keeping a tree fresh. This homemade tree preservative recipe
saves money and keeps the tree healthy for weeks. There are many store-bought solutions, but why bother with those when you can make your own? Here's what you need:
- 1 quart warm water
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon chlorine bleach
You'll want to top off your tree every day. This simple solution will help you enjoy a lush, green tree right through New Years.
