Also, if air drying is preferred is there any preference to where it sits and how long it sits before it's not considered sanitary anymore?
Soaking for 10 minutes should be plenty. I wouldn't wipe, air dry for another 10 min. I would use the equipment within an hour. Remember the 5 second rule, germs can work fast, but in this case I think your fine.

+1 for not wiping, not good at post-sanitizine unless you have sterile wipes of course! Hey there's an idea, sanitizing wipes. Do they exist?

I use Iodophor so I will air dry but most of the time I do a quick rinse with tap water! I know there can be "stuff" in tap water but I have had no issues so far!
