    Has anyone thought to use/have used a dehydrator to dry handmade paper? DH was in the attic moving things around and found my old one and I thought I just might keep it out to use when I make paper. Thoughts?

    It would certainly speed up the process but so does putting a box fan on low My dehydrator has a round thing in the center where the trays stack (hope that makes sense)so I would end up with circular paper with a hole in the center. I have also read or saw can't remember, where people dry handmade paper on the lowest setting of an oven.

    Mine's an olddddd Monkey Wards one that has square racks so would work fine. I would think it would be better than the fan because it doesn't move as much air to blow it all around and there is only so much room between racks that it can't go far. Too bad I just did paper yesterday. Don't feel like hauling it all back out to try it today but will soon.
