I wish I knew this many, many years ago!

Ingredients

1ST
1 gal
water
1 tsp
bleach
2ND
1 qt
water (use fresh water - not from above)
2 Tbsp
white vinegar
1 tsp
lemon juice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
After you scoop out & carve your pumpkin (aka Jack-O-Lantern), dip it in a large container of bleach & water (see above), 1 minute. The bleach will kill bacteria & help your pumpkin stay fresh longer.
2
Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add vinegar & lemon juice to water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.
