Too abrasive I think, but I was very tempted

I did that and it works fine unless your blades are really cruddy. Then a pre-soak would probably be needed.

Years ago I had two Coyote pelts hanging on the clothes line. The pelts had moister on them from melting snow. I was struck with a mighty brain storm.
As soon as my wife went to shower I grabbed the pelts and put them in the dryer. The shower was running but I heard the stairs creak. My wife came down to get something and asked what was in the dryer? I could not think of anything to say. Needless to say she investigated. It’s all just a blur to this day.
I did not fare well of many days afterwards.

I’ve been busted using many of the wife’s “tools”

Her 2500$ convection oven does a great job “kiln” drying small ornamental tree branches for turnings. Her digital kitchen scale does a great job at telling me how much more time the branch needs in the oven :)

Her candy thermometer made it into my hot hide glue pot

The food dehydrator is good for drying wet pen blanks

Her little mesh bag thingy she puts bras/lingerie in to wash them in the washing machine? Perfect for cleaning micromesh in the washing machine

Arts and crafts brushes are excellent for spreading hide glue

Crock pots are awesome for heating bottles of mineral oil/wax mixtures for cutting boards

I dare you to find a single roll of wax paper IN the kitchen at any given time
