How do I dry my whetstones?

After each sharpening session, I simply set my stones on the shelving unit in my garage, and allow them to dry at their own pace.  If they were soaked, then I would set either on the side, or at an angle, propped up by another whetstone. That way, the entire stone gets air circulating around it, and dries evenly throughout. I do not know if it actually makes a difference in the short or long term, but it’s a habit I have developed over the years.
