Sanitation Surface
 
New to brewing here...

Currently I've been using paper towel laid out as the surface to place my sanitized equipment on. Is this OK? What do other folks use?

I use no rise sanitizer (like Idophor). This means I can just take it out of the sanitizer, shake it off and use it right away.

What kind of equipment are you talking about?

I use Iodaphor as well.

Wisps, spoons to stir, funnels, etc is the equipment I'm getting at

I use iadophor to but I just clean my counter well and then keep the surface wet with the sanitizer. I don't use paper towels.

If you use it at 12.5ppm, just leave it in the sanitizing bucket and shake off the liquid when you need it. This way you don't have to worry about picking up stuff.

I actually keep a bottle of hand sanitizer around for this purpose. There was a time when I used surgical gloves as well (just like AB, Alton Brown that is;)) but I stopped doing this since it seemed like overkill.

I like to use a cookie tray.

This is kind of what I was thinking. Otherwise maybe a Rubbermaid tote top.

yeah paper towels are harbingers of microbes (or at least potentially) your better off placing them on something that is sanitized, (like a countertop)...
