Warming my TP


Do baseboard heaters get hot enough that I should think twice about mounting a toilet paper holder above one?

Check the manufacturer's instructions for clearance - I put one in a few weeks ago and I think it said nothing within 12" above the heater. You should be fine.

Paper burns at 455 degrees F. Keep the boiler water lower then that.

If you are delicate skinned, hang that paper about 4" off the pipe.
