I love bread making very much!  But I have this problem of my homemade bread turning dry and stale the next day.  :(  The bread tasted very good on the very day when out of the oven.  Any tips and pointers?  I had the same problem with bread machine bread too. 

Appreciate if anyone can share their experiences.

Thanks!

Oh, I don’t mean bread turning bad entirely, but then it somehow becomes dry and smells yeasty.  It is unlike store bought breads that can stay soft for few days…. just like Gardenia bread.  Even if I had wrapped it in plastic bags and store in airtight container, most still becomes dry the next day.

Am I saying something innocent and obvious - So bread made by starter dough stays soft and last longer?  I’ve been making mostly white and light wholemeal sandwich bread (in my Kenwood BM256 bread machine).  Recipes are from my collection of breadmachine books.
