Pumpkin Dunk'N Jack o'Lantern Preservative will add 10 to 15 or more days (that's up to 2 weeks...!) to the life of your prized carved Jack o'Lantern masterpiece.

Pumpkin Dunk'N acts as a pickling agent to make your carved pumpkin crisp to keep it from sagging and becoming mushy. Pumpkin Dunk'N also acts as a fungicide to retard mold and decay...!

Compare the picture above with the untreated carved pumpkin after ten (10) days, and you see why you need Pumpkin Dunk'N as a Jack o'Lantern preservative for your favorite Halloween Pumpkin Carvings.

Simply dissolve a package of Pumpkin Dunk'N in 3 gallons of clean water in a bucket or plastic tub. After you finish carving, soak your pumpkin in the pumpkin preserver solution for 24 hours.



Instructions For Using

STEP #1.

  • Obtain a clean five (5) gallon bucket.
  • Fill it with three (3) gallons of clean water.
  • Use warm water if available.
  • This will allow an average 12" pumpkin to be immersed in the bucket without overflowing liquid onto the floor.
  • Mix in the Pumpkin Dunk'N per package instructions.
  • Stir well with a wooden paddle or stick each time before use.


  • STEP #2.
  • Cut out lid in hexagonal shape.
  • Clean out inside of your pumpkin and save the seeds.
  • Begin carving your Halloween pumpkin masterpiece.
  • Lid can be placed inside the carved Jack-o-lantern.
  • All parts will then be soaking in the Pumpkin Dunk'N.


  • STEP #3.
  • Totally immerse your carved pumpkin and lid in solution.
  • Place brick, stone or weight on top of pumpkin.
  • This will help to keep the pumpkin completely IMMERSED.
  • Cover if possible to keep out dirt and debris.
  • For best results LEAVE YOUR CARVED PUMPKIN IN THE Pumpkin Dunk'N SOLUTION FOR 24 HOURS.


  • STEP #4.
  • Remove and dry in upside down position over the bucket.
  • This will help drain off all the Pumpkin Dunk'N solution.

  • STEP #5.
  • Rub off the white Pumpkin Dunk'N powder on exterior of the carved pumpkin.
  • You can wash it off with clean water from a garden hose, if desired.
  • You can then polish your pumpkin gently with a clean cloth.
  • Enjoy your completed Halloween Pumpkin Masterpiece.
  • Have a safe and happy Halloween.
