The topic of how to keep pumpkins from decaying is one that a lot of people have every October. Today, we’ll discuss a few tips and strategies for preserving Autumn’s globed gems for longer than you ever imagined!
It’s now time to clean your newly chosen fruit! All fruits have bacteria on their skins that will eventually cause the skin to decompose over time. A mild bleach solution is preferable to water when it comes to removing some stains.
Bleach eliminates any microorganisms on the pumpkin’s surface, and it also encourages the skin to oxidize. Use a solution of 2 tablespoons of bleach to 1 gallon of water to clean your choice.
Always use protective gloves when working with bleach. After a few hours, set out the pumpkin to dry in the sun. Finally, it’s time for the last step!
