Yes.

Maybe put a large towel or something silmilar on the radiator and the wet clothes on top of that?? otherwise the heat might be a bit fierce.

Come to think of it - keeping wet towels on the radiators during the coldest weather is a cheap and cheerful way to add humidity to the air.

ohhhh!!! good! see, my skin is used to 199% humidity and has become quite dry! i'm going through moisturizer like mad!
last night, i actually ran a piece of clothesline from the handles on two windows near the radiator and hung them there. this morning they are dry, while the few i have outside are not. it takes days for them to dry outside. works for me :)

thanks for the tips, both of you!! diky!!

Do not, however, attempt to dry wet sneakers on top of it... the soles will curl up ruining them. I lost my favorite white keds that way :(

You can place them near the radiator.

When I was 19 I had the opportunity to do a semester in Spain. I let my timidity/fear keep me from going. I have spent the last 22 years kicking myself. I am now living it vicariously through you!

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."

those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
