I have a cat, Only uses litter box when indoors. Not picky. My other kitty wont use a box with a hood. Any suggestions?
Trying to find the right litter box... So my kitten will use the box and stop pooping on my clothes/towels. Small apartment..... She doesn't cover up her business yet still knocks all litter out of box...

It sounds to me like your kitten is not litterbox trained. That sounds obvious since she isn't using it, but sometimes cats don't get the message immediately. If the cat is used to going outside and relieves herself wherever she feels like it, when she comes inside, she probably thinks she can do the same thing. She thinks the box is a playground. I have 2 large litter boxes for my 3 cats. I put about an inch and a half of litter in each. I scoop daily and scrub the boxes once a week. My cats don't like covered boxes either so I do that to keep down the odor. I also keep my boxes in a closet with a rug under them. I vacuum up the litter they kick out when I scoop. As Delilah likes to use towels, etc. like your's, I keep all that stuff in a hamper with a lid. Also, not all cats cover. One of mine doesn't but I don't know which one. It's also a good idea to have her checked out by a vet to make sure there are no health issues. Try a little patient training and praise with her.
