Drying Lettuce

What can I use to dry my lettuce besides a salad spinner? Salad spinners take up a lot of space and I have a very small kitchen and refrigerator.

What I have always done is wrap my wet lettuce in a clean kitchen towel, walk outdoors, and spin it around over my head or to my side. Works like a charm.

You can lay a few pieces of lettuce at a time on a paper towel then lay another on top of it and gently press them dry. It works great.

Put it in a clean cotton pillow case and twirl around.

The clean drying cloth (for dishes) works. Just take each corner up like a pouch and spin your arm while you are holding it. Do it outside.

Plain old paper towels, or even kitchen towels work very well.

I took some classes from a French chef and he always dried his lettuce by putting it in a new, clean pillowcase and putting it in the wash machine on spin cycle for a few seconds.

Mesh onion or potato bag. Take it outside and whirl it around a few times.
