Handy Life Hack: You Can Give New Life to Your Stale Bread

Good news: as long your bread hasn't gone moldy—the point of no return—there's still a chance for you to enjoy it.

To revive stale bread, all you need is water, a paper towel or some aluminum foil, and your oven or microwave.

If you choose to use the oven:

  1. Preheat it to 200 degrees.
  2. Quickly run the bread under the faucet.
  3. Wrap in aluminum foil.
  4. Place the bread on a baking sheet.
  5. Then bake it for 5-10 minutes.

Boom. Done.

Or you'd rather use the microwave:

  1. Wrap the bread in a damp paper towel.
  2. Place it on a microwave safe plate.
  3. Heat for 10 seconds.

If needed, repeat the process. Watch closely so your bread doesn't overcook—or worse, catch on fire.

Congratulations, you've brought your stale bread back to life.
