No one wants to open their bread only to discover that mold has set in. Thankfully, there’s a hack going viral on TikTok that keeps your bread fresh and doubles as an easy serving method.
TikTok content creator, Cary (@pairswellwithwhine), used a simple plastic container to create a new way to keep bread fresh and easy to access.
In her video, Cary uses a tall, vertical container, like this one from OXO. She removes the twist tie from the plastic packaging around a loaf of bread, and then slides it (including the plastic) inside the container. Then, she flips the excess plastic over the side of the container and places the airtight top on it.
Sealing the bread in the container helps keep it fresh, but it also serves another purpose. Because the plastic is looped onto the outside of the container, she just pulls it down to dispense bread like it’s in a Pez dispenser. Once she has what she needs, she just lets go of the plastic.
Pretty genius, right?
This isn’t the first clever bread-storage hack to go viral, though. Earlier this year, Lisa Neeleman Wilson went viral on Instagram with the airtight bread drawer she created using a Rev-a-Shelf cover.
So, if you regularly open your bread only to discover some nasty green spoilage, give one of these storage hacks a shot.
