The BEST Way To Preserve Pumpkins

Wet & Forget
by Wet & Forget
Halloween is on it's way and the hardest thing is picking the best time to carve your pumpkins. We researched a few of the top methods for pumpkin preservation and we even setup a time-lapse camera so we could see which method worked and which didn't. We were able to find out an extremely easy and amazing method for keeping pumpkins mold and mildew free for at least two weeks.
