Tip for keeping your Jack-O-Latern Longer!!

  • Print

If you go to Harter House, PriceCutter or even Murfin Markets you see PUMPKINS!!!! Tis the season!!

When you get the kids a Pumpkin- do this simple tip to keep them looking longer!

  My brother Patrick sent me this tip and I haven't tried it myself but I hope it does work since I hate to see the wrinkled old pumpkins just before Halloween.... Here is the deal After you scoop out the carved pumpkin, dip in a large container of bleach and water ( use 1 ts: per 1 gal mix) The bleach will kill the bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry ( drain upside down) add 2 Tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution on your pumpkin and it will look fresh for weeks!!!

-Hope it works!
