I just let it air dry. If it's still wet it won't hurt anything

No,you do not have to dry the equipment. I just let things drain as much as possible.

RDWHAHB.

The small concentration of iodine (when used at the proper dilution) is completely harmless and undetectable in your beer. You can dry things, but it's also ok to take something out the sanitizer, shake off the excess liquid, and use it immediately.
