why alcohol? what does that do? and what kind of alcohol? pure alcohol from the lab or like vodka?
As much as I love my shoes, I'd rather save the vodka for myself!
That said, you use rubbing alcohol. I don't know why it works, but it does. That shoe stretch in a bottle stuff is essentially rubbing alcohol.
i heard u should only do the alcohol/water trick on leather..no suede, no fabric. anyone used this on these fabrics and it came out ok? i have suede manolo mary janes i would love to use this trick on but i don't wanna damage them!!!
update! last night for the first time i took a qtip and swabbed rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shoe then put my shoe stretcher inside. overnight. tonight they fit amaaaazingly. SO comfortable. im comparing them to the ones i stretched just with a shoe stretcher no alcohol and there is no comparison!
