Don’t throw out your wilted hydrangeas just yet! Try this incredibly simple flower hack to revive your wilted hydrangeas.
I’m a surprisingly low-maintenance woman. I don’t regularly get my hair done, or manicures, or pedicures, or lash extensions, or microblading, or facials, or waxing, or (fill in the blank beauty treatment). However, when it comes to treating myself to fresh flowers, I’m all in! Just a simple grocery store bouquet makes such a difference in every room. My Trader Joe’s hydrangeas last for up to a MONTH if I take good care of them! I can’t attest to other grocery store hydrangeas, but I swear by the ones I buy at TJ’s!

It’s like a fun magic trick! Simply snip the end of the wilted stem and float it in a cool water bath, ensuring the stem is submerged, and wait until the hydrangea revives. This little flower hack works like a charm for me nearly every time! It will not work on flowers that are past their prime. It also may take anywhere from 3-10 hours for a stem to revive and the process can’t be rushed. I change the water in my flowers every day and sometimes remove leaves to ensure the blooms are staying well-hydrated. Let me know if you try this trick and tell me how it works for you.
