How To Keep Mold Away From Your Pumpkins
Fall brings cooler weather and with it many traditions. One of which is pumpkin carving. Whether you are making a work of art, just having fun, or both you don’t want all your hard work to go to waste.
Here are some tips to keep your pumpkin around through the end of October.
- After your pumpkin has been carved, rinse it out with water to get rid of excess strings and gunk.
- Take a large bucket or tub and fill it with one gallon of water.
- Stir three teaspoons of an anti-microbial such as concrobium into the water.
- Dunk in the pumpkin. Be sure to hold it down as it will try to float. The entire pumpkin should sit in the solution for two minutes. You might want to wear gloves, too. Remove from the solution and let the pumpkin air dry.
