how do you all dry out your racking tubes and canes, I've been hanging my up after washing, but they are not drying.. I'm afraid of getting mold in them

I rinse them well with warm water to be sure there is no residual wort or beer in them and then air dry them. I've had no problems with mold and they dry out in a couple of days.

There's a small brush on a nylon string that you can buy to pull through your tubing if you are really concerned.

Other than that, as long as you put hot water through them after using them you should never get any mold in them. Some of my tubing is over 5 years old and they are still clear.
