DESPITE the fact we ALWAYS reseal the bag with our fresh loaf of bread in, somehow someone (read: our partners) will leave it open to get stale.
Well rather than having another blow-out argument about this common household hang-up, one mum has revealed how you can get your bread fresh again - and all you need is a tap.
Posting on the Facebook group Budget Friendly Meals Australia, the mum claimed running the bread under water and putting it in the oven to dry out makes it taste freshly baked again.
She explained: "I've been conscious of reducing my waste and the job of using up stale bread rolls has always been a problem."
Instead of making yet another batch of breadcrumbs, she added: "My mum told me a trick her mum used to do back in the day, and it really works."
To begin with, preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius and then run the bread under the tap.
She wrote: "'All you do is run the bread roll under a tap so it's wet and then pop it in the oven for a few minutes.
"Honestly, it's like you just bought it from the bakery – so fresh, so yum."
Unsurprisingly, other members of the group were blown away with the trick which promises to make your weekly shop go further.
"I'm totally trying this," one wrote.
"This is such a good idea," another added. "I threw out some bread recently as it went stale, but I won't be doing that again!"
Meanwhile, a third suggested: "You can also put it in the oven with a tray of water under it. Works just as good."
Alternatively, others suggested making croutons out of stale bread or making breadcrumbs and freezing it for future use.
