So glad it is helpful - the tips work, it's a matter of applying them... With all the hand washing we do, it's kind of a developed habit, but so worth it! Thanks for your comment.

Thank you, Michelle! I am so glad this is helpful for you. At first, I really thought what I had was too old BUT after a bit of time the surprise saved me from a trip to the supermarket. It's simple to do, and worth the testing time so the bread baking is a success.
