What are the secret of keeping cooked rice soft and nice for several days in the fridge without the rice turning hard?

As any busy person would understand how important it is to cook food beforehand and store them in the fridge for few days so that everyday after work, a person could quickly microwave the food and eat them. This will give us extra time to continue doing other household work rather than just having to cook rice for every single meal. I personally love eating rice, so do millions of other people in the world.

But many people does face the same problem as I do when it comes to storing cooked rice in a container inside a fridge for a few days. If the rice was consumed right after it is made, it taste great since it is soft and sticky as of yet. If you store the cooked rice in a container inside a fridge for a few days, the cooked rice turns really hard and it becomes difficult to even dig out the rice using a spatula spoon. What I do is I put some clean water on the rice either sprinkling some water or simply pouring some water. This will loosen the rice a bit allowing me to scoop out some rice with some difficulty still. Then I microwave the rice which then makes them soft and ready to be eaten.

The problem with this method is that it is quite difficult to scoop out rice with a spatula spoon when the rice is hard. At times often I drop quite some amount of rice on the floor or on the ground while struggling to scoop out the rice from the container. So, if there is an easier way out there on the internet that could possibly makes things easier to scoop out rice from a container when the rice is hard, I would very much appreciate it.
