Why bleach works in perking wilted flowers back up?

In: Chemistry

It is probably because of osmosis. Bleach is a solution of sodium hypochlorite. When particles like the Na+ and the ClO- anions are added water is drawn to the higher conc. of particle (cation/ions/anions) The conc. of particles was increased because bleach was added. Due to the water moving back into the cells of the flower it perks up.
