Keeping White Bread from Getting Moldy?

I have purchased varied baker's white bread, but all of them start to go moldy after a few days in the bread bin. How can I prevent this happening without having to put my bread into the fridge?


Many thanks.

I do not think there is any way to keep bread for more than a few days without developing mold. Bakery bread has less preservatives to prepackaged sliced bread so would probably keep even less time.

I store all my bread in the refrigerator instead of a bread box. If you don't want to use the fridge, you might want to buy your bakery bread more often in smaller quantities so you can use it up before it goes bad.

Good luck!

Reading your info just made me realize I should cut in half my homemade bread, and freeze it while using up first half and storing the first half in bread box. Thus it will half the time a whole loaf could get moldy.

You can freeze and refreeze white bread without a change in its texture. Just take out what you need and put back in freezer not in the fridge.

I use to hate bread kept in the fridge, but I was finding that leaving the bread out in the kitchen in the summer months, it got moldy, and in the winter when the heat was on, it also didn't last long. So I ended up putting it in the fridge and have had no problem with it getting moldy and found that it didn't change the texture or taste of the bread, so I'm back to using the fridge for storage and haven't thrown a moldy slice away in a very long time.
