How to Make a Pumpkin Last Longer

Anytime that we have wanted to carve our pumpkins during the fall season, we have had to wait until the night before Halloween in order to assure that the pumpkins would last more than a few hours.

Here are some things that you can do to extend the life of your carved pumpkins this year, so you can enjoy them even longer.

Wash your pumpkins.

Make sure you wash the outside of the pumpkin before carving to get rid of any dirt that could carry microscopic organisms that will begin attacking the pumpkin once it has been cut.

Spray the entire inside and all exposed cut areas liberally with your Bleach Solution and allow to dry for about 30 minutes.

Spray your pumpkins.

Protect your pumpkin.

Rub coconut oil or petroleum jelly over all the areas that you previously sprayed with your preservative spray.

This will create a protective barrier that will help keep new bacteria or fungi from growing and extend the life of you carved treasure.
