    You can also put a piece of bread in the bag with the brown sugar. If it is very dry, you will need to repeat with fresh bread for a few days. Remove the bread when it is soft.

    Th bread works great, sometimes it only takes an hour or two. Carful so your sugar doesn't get too soft. The bread is supposed to work on cookies too, but I have never tried that myself.

    My grandma told me to put a slice of apple in the bag and it will soften it up
