Jack-o’-Lantern Hack: Use a Power Drill to Hollow Out Your Pumpkin

Pumpkin carving can be a fun way to spend quality time with your family.  But if you just wanna get to the actual carving as fast as possible, this’ll help.  There’s a pumpkin hack making the rounds on social media that lets you hollow them out a lot faster.

Normally, you have to cut the top open.  Then you scoop all the seeds and other gunk out with a spoon, or your hands.  A lot of people find that part gross.  But it’s less of a mess and a whole lot faster if you use a power drill.

You’ll also need a power mixer, or at least an egg beater attachment from one.  Just take one of those, put it in a power drill like a drill bit, and go to town.

It’ll scrape down the inside of your pumpkin out a lot faster.  And when you turn the pumpkin over, everything should fall right out.
