The hanky is the way to go ,i never worried about it in high school but now im standing in front of my church family and to me it would be kinda bad manners to spit on the floor so i put a mens kerchief in my left palm and use it when i dump, them slip it in my pocket between songs.
This brings something up i have been wondering ,about why do some horns act like they are hooked to a garden hose ? My 22B will get gurgly after just one song ,on the other hand my student model 15 B goes for a long time without dumping ,and then it's barely a heavy dew ?
Does the 22 B make me strain more or what is going on here?

If I'm sitting on a real stage, I empty it on the floor. If I'm standing, I turn around and empty it discretely. If I'm on a nice wooden floor or light-colored carpet, I have a cloth in my case that I put on the floor. When I practice at home, I empty it on a dirty sock from the clothes hamper.
I skipped over 4 pages, so perhaps I'm not alone, but I use a handkerchief cupped around the spit valve.
Other band colleagues use a towel on the floor but I notice their aim isn't always that good.
Haha my wife made me spread an old beach towel on the floor in front of my music stand. She was especially grossed out by condensation dripping out of the bell. I usually just keep a small towel or microfiber cloth on my lap.
