She asked me not to take off my wet clothes on the staircase ....
I am a little confused by the end of your sentence. How does taking your clothes off on the staircase help to dry them? Did the person actually ask you two things:
1) Not to take off your wet clothes on the staircase; and
2) To dry them
If this is not clear, what I mean is, did "she" say:
1) Please don't take your wet clothes off on the staircase to dry them.
2) Please don't take your wet clothes off on the staircase, and please dry them.
