Leaving boots in a plastic bag...? Does it work?

My friend told me to make my tall boots more flexible and less stiff, I should clean them like I normally do and then put them in a plastic bag overnight. Does this actually work?

I doubt it.

If the bag is warm maybe. Heat warms up leather & makes it more pliable. But if the plastic bag is warm, the leather will sweat from any moisture in it & in the bag, you don't want that.

I don't see how that would work at all. The best way to break in boots is to wear them, clean them, oil them, and wear them some more.
