#9– Wet Socks
What you need:
- Wet socks
- Dip wet socks in water.
- Wring out excess water.
- Stuff into the shoe. Use as many as needed to stuff the shoe fully.
Benefits: easy, free (assuming you have things on hand).
Drawbacks: Extremely low success rate. Just as the wet sock method above, the fact is that many shoe materials will be ruined if they become wet, such as suede and leather.
Bottom Line: There are plenty of other methods to try. This one isn’t worth the risk to the shoe.
