So you probably have carved or are about to carve your pumpkin. Here are a couple of things you can do to keep it in good shape for Halloween night.
- Wash the pumpkin with a mixture of dish soap and peppermint extract. Let it let it air dry.
- Clean out as much of the inside as you can. The drier and cleaner it is, the slower your pumpkin will decay.
- To preserve the inside, spray with a mixture of water and peppermint extract.
- If your pumpkin starts to look a little dry and wilted, soak it in cold water for a couple of hours to rehydrate any shriveling areas to make it look firm and fresh again.
