Most bakers recommend that a good loaf of freshly baked bread should not be stored in loose fitting plastic bags. The plastic does not allow the bread to breathe, which can lead to moisture being trapped in the bag, resulting in bread that can be a bit soggy. If it is stored in the refrigerator, the loose fitting plastic bag can actually promote the growth of mold. Although it is true that most commercially prepared bread is sold in plastic bags, most of these breads are sliced and would dry out very quickly if not stored in plastic and many of them also contain chemical preservatives to increase shelf life, so the issue of whether or not a plastic bag is good or bad is not a factor.

Paper works well for bread storage because

it allows some air to circulate around

the bread.

  A cloth bag, used specifically for bread storage, is another good method that can be used. A large napkin or piece of cloth can also be used. Cloth keeps the bread fresh, but also allows it to breathe.
