Skate Break In Question

I'm breaking in some new Vapor 10's. I've worn them for about 3 hours on the ice and my blisters became too much to bare (literally ripped off my skin, 3 weeks later still not healed...ouch!). Anyway, before I get back on the ice I want to wear them around the house for a half hour-hour a day for a few days. I've heard that wetting a sock (damp) and wearing that in the skates when you walk around simulates a sweaty foot and helps break the skates in more. Is this true? I don't want to ruin my new boots by doing something foolish, and though it sounds like a decent enough idea I thought I would double check with you guys first.

Cheers.
