How to Keep A Carved Pumpkin Fresh for Weeks
It’s fun to carve faces into pumpkins and see who can make the scariest or the funniest, but have you thought about how to keep your Carved Pumpkin Fresh until Halloween? Here’s a Frugal Tip on what to do after carving and scooping out the guts.
Mix 1 tsp of Bleach with 1 Gal of Water in a large container.
Dip your pumpkin into the large container of bleach and water (1 tsp:1 gal mix).
How does this keep your carved pumpkin fresh?
The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.
