You'll burn up your dryer doing this - they're meant for small area heating (the drum of your dryer) not your houses garage -Let alone - moisture if you're drying clothes - and lint any other time.

For 255.00 you can get a electric garage heater that would most likely cook you right outta there and thats a lot less than buying a new dryer and way more effficient!
