Get yourself a brown sugar chef. made of terracotta, you soak him in water for 15 minutes, pat him dry and burrow him into yoour sugar.keeps it moist and soft for up to three months, then just re-soak him whenn required and follow the process.

Try putting a piece of orange peel in the container.

Or cover sugar in container with a crust of bread.

Thanks everyone - tried the Crust of Bread overnight and it worked! Amazing - I will use the Brown Sugar Chef when it arrives, will save me changing the Crust - if you know what I mean!

A piece of apple also does the trick, the only think with using foods to do the job is that they can go off and taint your sugar.

It depends on seevral factors such as : 1) Do you need 100% financing? 2) Do you have a down payment and if so how much? 3) Are you a first time home buyer that would meet state income guidelines that have low interest rates? 4) Do you want to pay PMI or have the lender pay the PMI? These factors go into the pricing. A 660 will qualify for a good program, in today's market I would estimate depending on the loan program anywhere from 5.45%-6.875%. Good luck!

Now is not a good time, But if you insist, a 660 would poblarby get you a 5.25 6.25 APR. Read your contract carefully and ask a lot of questions Happy Hunting!
