Sharing her secret tip for reviving any stale loaf of bread, Moulton says that if you splash a stale loaf of bread with water, wrap it up tightly in foil and then heat it for 12 to 15 minutes in the oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, the bread will feel fresh again. 

A quick conversion: 300 degrees Fahrenheit is approximately 150 degrees Celsius.

  • Keep store-bought loaves in plastic bags at room temperature.
  • Never keep bread in the fridge.
  • Freeze what you don't use.
  • Make breadcrumbs or bread and butter pudding with stale slices.
