I don't have a stand for my old Silex funnel, so I use the empty Chemex carafe -- it is more stable anyway. If the parts of the various brewers are still damp when I put them away, I don't worry about it. I live in Oregon -- everything is damp anyway! I like your paper towel wicking technique, Michael. I will try it next time.

I use a paper napkin or paper towel, twist it into the bowl so one end rests on the bottom and the other end remains outside the mouth. This helps dry the bottom and also allows the remaining moisture to be wicked away more quickly. And you can store it that way till next use and reuse the paper many times.
