The holidays bring joy and entertainment to our lives, but often include activities that can lead to fires and burns. The following section outlines ways to enjoy the holidays without endangering yourself or others.
NOTE: Take care to keep solution out of reach of thirsty pets and curious toddlers.
HOW THE SOLUTION WORKS:
The Karo Syrup provides the sugar necessary to allow base of the tree to absorb water. Up to 1.5 gallons of water can be absorbed by a typical tree over a two-week period. The boron in Borax allows the tree to move water and sugar out to every branch and needle in the tree. Magnesium compounds in the Epsom salts and iron from the chelated iron provide components for the production of chlorophyll to help keep the tree green. The bleach prevents mold from forming in the solution. Other benefits of the recipe include a noticeable increase in the tree’s natural evergreen fragrance – plus the tendency to shed fewer needles means less mess to clean up after the holidays!
