    Lol. is the onion one supposed to be a threat? Instead, since I onion crying hurts and since citrus can somehow phase through my squeezer and hands to then be magnetized to my eyes (it's happened many times now, yes it hurts a lot.) I have invested in a pair of food-safe chem lab goggles. They work great on onions and have already protected me from magic citrus at least once.

    Amusingly enough, I actually sometimes use the shower steam trick that 5-minute crafts "debunked." But I also take very long, hot showers that make a LOT of steam as a result, and it doesn't work perfectly, it just *reduces* wrinkles, so it's best for synthetic fabrics that are only mildly wrinkled. It's very funny to me that they decided to "debunk" one of the few things on these channels that actually kinda works! Also, if you do use the shower steam trick, don't hang the shirt directly on the shower rod-- that'll just risk getting it wet when you open the shower curtain! Hang it on the door, a cabinet, or the opposite end of the towel holder instead.

    Any soda is a carbonated liquid that will always be too acidic to keep flowers or any plant in. Additionally, it is not as simple as sugar gives us energy so it will revitalize a wilting flower. Sugar if anything will make the liquid a breeding ground for microorganisms. It is really a recipe for really watery compost made of dead plant material and soda. If this was true, we would be putting our flowers in cans of redbull already.

    Back in college I did the shower method for my dresses if they were only mildly wrinkled and it works but you do have to mess with it before you hop in once it is very steamy and again when you get out by keeping the bathroom door closed until the wrinkles are out. However that isn't good for your bathroom so I stopped doing that.

    So this is going to sound silly, but in one of my science classes, we tested putting flowers in soda. In moderation, adding soda to the flowers water did keep them alive for longer than the water on its own.

      A tiny amount of soda could help. The low sugar content would act as an energy source. But if the sugar content was very high, then the osmotic pressure would greatly slow or stop the flow of water into the plant stem.
