Homemade Liquid Shoe Stretch

What kind of alcohol do you use to stretch leather shoes?



Homemade Liquid Shoe Stretch

Try using scented body spray from the dollar store. The first ingredient listed is alcohol, and it really does work. Just spray both inside and outside of the shoe, and wear until it dries. Repeat if needed.


If the shoe has a suede type finish, spray only the inside. This is cheap (only $1), and smells better than Shoe stretch or plain alcohol. Since it is meant to be sprayed on skin, it doesn't seem to irritate the skin on your feet while you are wearing the shoes waiting for them to dry. (02/16/2009)

Homemade Liquid Shoe Stretch

You can use cheap dollar store cologne to stretch shoes, as it is almost all alcohol anyway! I spray the tight spot both inside and out and then wear the shoe to stretch the leather out. You may have to spray several times. It works best with shoes that are not lined or have leather linings - although I have also tried it with some success on fabric shoes, too. (02/16/2009)
