1/3 rubbing alcohol to 2 parts water. Put into a spray bottle. Spray then wear shoes as they dry.

This is what is in the expensive sprays.

Use body lotion. I have had good luck using body lotion or hand lotion to rub into the inside of the shoe where it needs to be stretched, then wearing it. Wearing thicker socks also helps. I have a two way shoe stretcher which works well for length and width but if the shoe is tight in the vamp/instep, the shoe stretcher doesn't work there. So I just work a liberal amount of lotion inside the shoe all around the whole area that is tight. The shoe stretcher does not widen the toe or raise the toe either, so I dampen a wad of tissue, wedge it in just right, and then force it with the shoe stretcher for a day or two to dry.

Dampen a bar of soap with water, rub it on the inside of the shoe, then put the shoe on your foot. Repeat as necessary until the shoe has stretched enough.

Fabric won't stretch, you'll end up thinning the fibers and getting holes. A synthetic leather shoe or a leather shoe can be stretched with a broom handle and elbow grease
