We have covers on most of our radiators, but sadly the one in the bathroom does not get warm enough to do anything to a towel. But the one in the sunporch gets so hot we have to make sure things aren't touching it. Go figure.<quoted text>
Before I do that, I think I'll scrub the radiators with soapy water and a stiff brush. THey are clean ENOUGH but not enough to put my clean towel on. But I did put an old towel over the one in the bathroom and put Mia on it last night. SHe was resistant to being put on it, but give her a few seconds... "hey... this is warm... and Rose can't bug me..."
I've also seen small slabs of marble or other stones on top of a radiator, so things can be put on them like books or a vase or even a butt.
