Jack 'O Lantern Hack! 3 Steps to Add a Little Longevity to Your Pumpkin!

The moment you first cut into a pumpkin, it begins to deteriorate. Here’s a quick way to slow down that process: 

  • Before you begin carving, scrape as much of the inside out as you possibly can. The more you scrape out, the longer it will last. 
  • You want to make the inside as dry as possible. 
  • Next, dab a little lemon juice and water to the cut edges followed by petroleum jelly or vegetable oil, which will work as a temporary sealant! 

This works for us, hope it works for you, too. Have a happy Halloween!
