If you’ve got big plans this weekend to get some pumpkin carving done for Halloween, you may already be dreading the mess.

There’s no denying it, pumpkin carving is a messy affair – especially the bit where you have to painstakingly remove all that stuff from inside your pumpkin. By the time you’ve spent an hour doing that; given yourself repetitive strain injury, you’re pretty over the idea of coming up with a cool pumpkin design idea. Your classic triangle eyes and mouth it is then…

But wait! Before you admit defeat, we have something for you that could make your pumpkin-carving a million times easier.

This woman has shared a hack for getting the stuff out of the middle of a pumpkin in just a few minutes! Nina Rutherford simply uses a hand mixer, and it takes a fraction of the time.

She shared photos of her genius tip on Facebook, along with a caption that reads: “I feel I need to pass on this Halloween pumpkin hack. Once you have cut the top off, get a hand mixer (with one or two whisks on it as both options work), and use this to detach all the insides of the pumpkin.

"Take the whisks right to the edge of the pumpkin so it scrapes the bits off, then just scoop out the insides that are now all mush. It has just taken me five minutes to do the inside of a pumpkin.”

Happy Halloween!
