Hi all,

New to this site so sorry if this isn't the right place.

Just moved home and trying to do things up. The bathroom has a chrome towel radiator which I've noticed has rusty patches. I'm able to clean up most of the rust, but I want to be able to protect it as much as possible against future rust, especially given we do place damp towels on it to dry.

Is there anything I can coat the radiator with to protect it, but which also wont make the towels we place on it dirty?

Thanks in advance !

When delivered chromium plated ironmongery sometimes has thin coating of clear lacquer - in much the same way that brass ironmongery pretty much all has. Maybe worth looking into clear lacquers which can take the heat

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
