    I only just recently tried it, pumpkin is on day 4, smells a bit like vinegar but not too off-putting, and looks GREAT. By now, my carved pumpkins always start dehydrating and molding inside. I will tell you, since I did this early in the season, that this pumpkin is indoors not out with more flies/bugs to attack it. And tomorrow, i will brush on more vinegar solution. Hope that helps you!
