Nobody likes walking around in wet shoes. It's tempting to just toss them in the dryer, but that could result in shrunken shoes and a damaged dryer. Instead, stuff and wrap the outsides with newspaper. It works fast and won't harm your shoes.
For the best results, wrap a few rubber bands around the newspaper to keep them in close contact with the shoes. The newspaper will absorb the water quickly, but depending on how drenched your shoes are, you may need to change the newspaper once or twice. You may want to remove the insole too.
We've shown you other ways to dry wet shoes, and how to keep them safe in a dryer if you must use one, but it's important to note that most manufacturers don't suggest you toss shoes in there — it's bad for the dryer and the shoes. Some dryers have a shoe-drying rack you can put in, but if you're without a dryer, a rack or a lot of time, this method (assuming you have newspaper!) works like a charm.
