Christmas Tree – Best Watering Mixture to Prevent drying Out

Q: I think I remember hearing on your show a few years ago that one of your guests said to add Jack Daniels to the water you put in your Christmas tree, (This is not a joke!) and that would help to preserve the tree. If you remember this could you tell me the possible mixture?

A: I have heard of vodka, whiskey, Clorox, aspirin and Seven-Up used as tree preservatives….but none are as effective as Dihydrogen Monoxide in the tree stand. Research proves it!
