:: How To Preserve Carved Pumpkins ::
So you carved your pumpkin! It looks awesome! But, after a few days, it’s not looking so good anymore. And if you live in a warmer climate, like Miami, it’s looking even worse! Luckily, all you need is your kitchen sink and some bleach!

Fill your kitchen sink with cool water and add a “good splash” of bleach, like Clorox. Place your jack-o-lantern inside to soak for at least 30 minutes on each side. Make sure you cover all sides. Repeat daily or as needed.
