I second that (and I know from experience). Airing clothes on radiators is very harmful to anyone and can cause serious chest infections to young people, older people, anyone with asthma or anyone who suffers from any respitary condition.
NEVER, NEVER put clothes on radiators in rooms you sleep in or sit in.
Always ensure that the tube outlet from your dryer is not loose and that the condensation goes straight outdoors and is not escaping into the room.
