    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. - by NANCYLOUISA
  • 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. - by HYDONA
  • My grandma told me to put a slice of apple in the bag and it will soften it up - by ANIKAJAC
