Especially prior to contests we often go round people's houses for sectional rehearsals or lessons. The problem I have is emptying the instrument of water. I feel uncomfortable doing this on someone's living room carpet, especially if I've just come in from the cold outside and there is loads of condensation. Which brings me to another point. I insist it is pure, pure condensated water and not "spit". Although I don't think I would drink it . . . Anyway, what is the best thing to do - just blow it out and hope it dries without staining, or bring a bucket thing, or perhaps a beer towel? What do you do? Any suggestions?
