Doesn't work; brown sugar gets moisture from bread. Don't want moisture in dish detergent; different chemistry. Moisture is what made it hard to begin with. I think hammering it in a plastic bag might be the best solution.

It is time consuming, but you can grate off the amount you need.

If you have a blender or food processor you no longer use, or use to make paper, you could break up chunks with a hammer (double bag it) and then grind it in the blender/processor.

It is expensive stuff, so you may want to try this...at least the hammer method (carefully).

Blessing!
