Bread Machines and Preventing Dry Bread

So.

I've got a bread machine and some delicious bread recipes. I've got them all down fairly well, turning out yummy soft loaves.

The problem is after a day the loaves end up dry. I store the bread in an air tight canister and yet it still gets dry. How can I make my bread retain it's moisture?

I've tried using more oil, but that hasn't helped. I've also heard that adding gelatin works, but I'm not going to try it because I'd rather not eat ground up animal bones.

Any advice?

    Are you sure the container is air-tight? Compare it to a zip-lock bag, and see if it's the same.

    i actually buy semi-hard loaves of french bread at grocery stores, slice them into halves or thirds, and stick them in a big gallon zip-lock, and they soften up nicely (which I prefer).

    My friend has one. All he does is wrap it in a tea towel and stores it cut end facing on the bench. No dryness problems, it is however a fairly crust loaf.

    It's air tight. At least it is guaranteed to be. It's one of those ones with the four snap locks.

    I don't have the first clue how they get dry inside that thing.
