all it does is add more contaminates to the camera. If you want to dry your camera, put it in a dry oven set at a low temperature. This is not to say that the camera will work again, but at least it is dried.

If your oven has a defrost cycle then use that - the defrost cycle basically blow fractionally warm air over the object - and leave it overnight, do not use other cycle without risking further damage

an oven without baking grease is preferred.  Also open the door to allow water vapor to escape.  Best bet is to buy a new cheap toaster oven for this application.
