You know Halloween is close when the pumpkins appear in supermarkets and shops………..

Aside from our usual cleaning service of homes and offices in Peterborough, Stamford, Bourne and its surrounding areas we have a useful and current cleaning tip for you all.

To create your own scary masterpiece out of Pumpkins, you have to start with a clean canvass. Although here at 360 Cleaning Services we don’t provide this service, we felt it would be helpful to our readers to offer some advice.

  • The first tip is that room temperature pumpkins are easiest to clean. Initially give your pumpkin a soapy warm bath and scrub in your kitchen sink. The key secret to cleaning is to start from the bottom and work your way up (unlike our normal methods when cleaning homes and offices).
  • Next, flip the pumpkin on its side to expose its base. Cut a large circle in the bottom of the pumpkin. Ensure the opening is big enough to reach easily inside. Next, carefully remove your cut up bottom using a knife to pry it out. Use your knife to level out the bottom of your cut up. This way, a candle can rest easily inside.
  • A large ice cream scoop works great to get the guts out. Dig in with your hands. It’s messy and slimy, just as Halloween should be. Set aside any seeds to clean and toast should you wish to treat yourself to a healthy snack.
  • To finish up, use a blunt knife to smooth the inside walls. Then use a spoon to scoop away the remains. All done. Just like that, your pumpkin is ready to become your Halloween masterpiece.

Now that you’ve created all that mess and you need your kitchen cleaning, feel free to contact us on 01733 302 912 or through our form on the website.

Happy Halloween!!
