Carolina used a rectangular tray that matched the shape of the bread perfectly.
The store-bought bread was also kept in the bag for added convenience, although some online doubted this method.
“Why keep the bread bag in it?” one person asked, and another replied, “You can pull on the edges of the bag and it will lift the bread up to grab a slice and not put your whole hand in the container.”
“We need this, our bread always runs out in two days,” wrote another woman, tagging her husband.

The handy hack ensures that the bread does not spoil too quickly.
After four days, the video received more than 24,000 “likes” from thousands of social media users.
According to heatherStore-bought bread can last up to seven days if stored at room temperature, while homemade bread often lasts only five days.
In warmer climates, the bread can also be kept in the refrigerator to keep longer.
How long can bread keep?
The shelf life of bread stored at room temperature ranges from 3 to 7 days, but can vary depending on the ingredients, type of bread and storage method.
Usually made from wheat (or alternative grains), yeast, and other ingredients, bread only stays fresh for a short period of time before it starts to go bad.
It can even become moldy and unsafe to eat, so it’s helpful to know how to keep it fresh for as long as possible.
Gluten-free bread is more susceptible to mold due to its higher moisture content and limited use of preservatives.
