Handy Dandy: How to Stretch Shoes

Want to stretch out shoes that are just a bit too tight?
You will need just one plastic sandwich bag for each shoe, water and your freezer!
Fill up plastic sandwich bags with water, just about half way.
Squeeze out any excess air and seal bag.
Insert this bags into your shoes and freeze overnight.
The newly formed ice block will stretch out your shoes as it expands.
Allow the ice to defrost for a few minutes so you can gently ease the bag out of your shoes (be careful not to 'rip' the bags out).
Try on and repeat steps if necessary.
I have done this several times and it has stretched out my shoes to just the right fit!
