We all love receiving and sending flowers around, be it a special occasion or just like that. But at times we are puzzled over the thought of what to do with these flowers after a couple of days. Fresh cut flowers have a short shelf life, hence after 2-4 days flowers start to sag. Now you don't have to worry about what you would do. Roses are a common flower used in almost all kinds of flower arrangements. And surprisingly it's super easy to preserve it in a way that it becomes more useful and is not just thrown away.
