It’s the top secret formula to keep your tree green until the 4th of July. And it is done using regular household ingredients!
Mix up these things into a solution…
-1 Gallon warm water
-2 cups clear Karo syrup
-1/2 cup chlorine bleach
-1/2 teaspoon 20 Mule Team Borax
-1/4 cup vinegar
-1/4 cup Woolite
Cut 1/2 inch off the bottom of tree and place tree trunk in solution for
12 to 24 hours.
Then rinse off the trunk and place in water in a standard tree stand.
This should be done outside to avoid dripping solution on carpets.
Remember there is bleach in it and it will leave spots if it drips.
The solution allows the tree to take up far more water than normal, so make sure you keep the reservoir topped off
