The mum in question took to Facebook to share her hack, posting a series of photos of her holding onto an electric hand whisk.

She’d sliced the top of the pumpkin off already to allow herself access to the insides, then she put the electric whisk inside.

She then went to town on the inside of the pumpkin using the device, before grabbing a spoon and scooping out all of the loose innards which needed removing.

The scoop saw her removing nearly all of the inside, with her kitchen surface remaining as clean as ever… just don’t drop it on your way to the bin!

Et voila! The pumpkin was ready for carving.

Writing on the social media platform, the mum penned: “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 work), 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."
