Try using one of the following as a replacement, and for more detailed information on each option read here.

  • Soda—1/4 cup of Sprite or another clear soda
  • Aspirin—1 crushed aspirin
  • Coins—Add a penny to fight bacteria with a crushed aspirin
  • Bleach—Add ¼ teaspoon and ¼ teaspoon sugar to fight bacteria
  • Vodka—A few drops will help your flowers bloom
