    my child has suede shoes, and travels frequently between our home and another family member's home. drying has been a solution for other types of shoes we have (sneakers for ex.), but if I dry these, they will likely shrink or have the fabric ruined. I dont have finances for a steamer, etc. I see some people have mentioned a hairdryer or alcohol. Are these legitimate solutions? Does anyone have another inexpensive solution? I cant risk infection from their home or from ours. Please advise, thanks.

    I keep a spray bottle of 91% rubbing alcohol by the front door and spritz my shoes inside and out before leaving the house. (And hope nobody lights a match.)
