My answer is no.

I've warmed boxer shots in a Microwave before, but not an Oven.

I've never heard of this O_O I'd be too afraid of catching them on fire. I've accidentally set fire to a dish towel when I was using it as a makeshift potholder--no way I would put fabric I cared about in there.

I use the oven to cook things. I use the drier to dry things...

Voted "no."

Radiators work, plus we have a gas oven.

Gas ovens are powered by fire.

This would be bad.

Never! it sounds like one of the most unhygienic things ever. lol

I'd rather just hang my clothes out to dry either outside or on a radiator. And if I want to waste thousands of watts of energy.. I'd use a tumble dryer. xD

WTF, that was random. :p

To answer the question, the majority of the time my oven is used for cooking pizzas. So no, I don't want my clothes smelling like pizza.

Set to say, 100 F, it should work. Just use a timer and check frequently. ;)

I've sometimes dried clothes, over a forced hot air heater vent. Works nicely.

search on amazon.com and they got em.....

and that would be the only good reason to put an item of clothing into an oven!

LOL and no... I haven't tried it yet.
