Here are two hints to help preserve carved pumpkins. The first thing to do, once a pumpkin is carved, is to coat all the cut areas and the inside of the pumpkin with petroleum jelly to help prevent moisture loss. Don’t forget under the lid!
The other method you can use is to mix water with a tablespoon or so of bleach in a 16-ounce spray bottle. Spray the pumpkin every day to help keep it from drying out and prevent the growth of any mold, which is very important. Enjoy your pumpkins, and happy Halloween!
P.S.: They don’t last long, so take photos!
That’s very considerate and an easy way to help without busting the budget.
The result was immediate relief from the pain and much more comfort with the crutches.
