tried it once .. spent too much time re-weaving the damage it did to the 
mail.  one of the small mixers without internal blades would work well (or 
stuffing a liner inside - a polyethelene food service container for example.
the damge to the dryer was something i mentioned in a post previous to 
this ... also, if it's one of the older enamel / porcelan on steel type drums 
(most new ones are stainless), you'll seriously mess up the internal surface

fell under the catagory of "experiments to perform when totally bored" ... 
was also a good reason for a co-op run to the beach for a party weekend.  

one comments, watch out fo the "men-of-war" washed up on the beach .... 
the really make a mess in the mail and the stingers can get embedded into 
the mesh (personally, i never go near the gulf with a good supply of 
"Adolph's Meat Tenderizer" - breaks down the jellyfish enymes that are 
trying to disgest your flesh if you have a run-in with them)
