Steve, for drying, do what Brazo says and then get a couple of clean towels and put your pad inbetween the two.

Press down on the pads and this should get the pads much dryer.

I then tend to air them for a few days to make sure they are bone dry before I store them.

As Brazo says, spin them up for a few seconds, will leave them *almost* dry.
I tend to spin them up inside a empty bucket, saves me and anything within 10ft getting sprayed as well!

Over the last few days since I started I have been doing this.

Wash with clean water and faury liquid inthe sink. Then leave in a bucket over night with fairy and water. Then in the morning rinse with clean water and then leave it on my radiatorset at low heat. Usually bone dry by the evening.
