How to Make Pumpkins Last Longer

Sharing is caring!

Yay for pumpkin season! If you live in Texas, like we do, it is still incredibly hot and does not in any way feel like fall! But we just started getting pumpkins in our local stores! I bought some a few days ago and am sharing my trick to get your pumpkins to stay mold free!

Steps to Prevent Pumpkins from Molding:

  2. Sponge
  3. Dry towel or cloth
  4. Water

That is it my friends! This only works for pumpkins that are kept in doors and are uncarved!

  1. Wipe them down with water in your sink or bath tub
  2. Using a sponge, clean off all the dirt and grime.
  3. With your sponge, add soft scrub to the sponge and scrub them all over.
  4. If you are using bleach and water, add a cap full of bleach to a cup of water. Dip your cloth or sponge into the solution and wipe down the pumpkins.
  5. Dry them with a clean dry towel

Happy Fall Season!
