					Clean with peppermint dish soap and wrap it up in a trash bag and let it refrigerate at night it will rehydrate the pumpkin after sitting out during the day and the peppermint dish soap will slow the decomposition since its antifungal.

					I saw a facebook video that tests out different ways to keep it fresh and using vegetable oil on the outside and inside helps preserve it.

					Wipe dry and carve as you normally would. After you carve your pumpkin add your water/bleach mixture to a spray bottle and spray the open surfaces, including the inside. This will kill the bacteria that's present and will help prevent it from rotting and from animals eating it.
