Not a day seems to go by without us stumbling on a new life hack or trick that we really want to try out.
And now there’s another one doing the rounds on the internet and this time it’s to help you freshen up any stale bread rolls you might have in your cupboard.
Yes, according to one woman, you don’t have to chuck out your stale bread, instead you just need a little bit of water and an oven and it’ll be good as new.
She explained that all you had to do in order to freshen up your bread roll was quickly run it under a tap, then pop it in the oven for a few minutes.
In a post she wrote: “I’ve been conscious of reducing my waste and the job of using up stale bread rolls has always been a problem.
“There’s only so many bread crumbs I can keep in the freezer and my kids aren’t a fan of defrosted rolls.
“My mum told me a trick her mum used to do back in the day, and it really works.”
Now, don’t go totally soaking your bread until it’s a soggy mess and is falling apart.
You just need to get the bread roll a little wet.
After you’ve done this, put it in the pre-heated oven for a few minutes.
“Honestly, it’s like you just bought it from the bakery – so fresh, so yum,” she added.
People who saw the hack couldn’t help but wonder if it would work with other types of bread.
“I haven’t tried normal bread. But when you get bread rolls and they are like a day or two old and they get stale I would wet my hand and rub water over it and pop in oven to refresh. Yum,” replied one user.
Another said: “I do this with tiger bread for soups if it goes stale. I wet them with some milk with a pastry brush and chuck it in the oven. As good as new.”
Other people advised using a damp paper towel to wet the bread instead of putting it under the tap.
“It comes out perfect. Yep have been doing this for a long time, I think my Mum taught me this one,” added someone else.
