    You can get a lot of interesting toning effects with an outside clothesline, especially if a lot of seagulls are flying around.

    I don't have a drying cabinet, not because I can't afford one, but because I don't want one. They blow dust around. It's far better to let your film dry in ambient temperature in ways suggested by previous posts. You just have to wait longer for it to dry. Patience is a virtue.

    Another vote for the shower. I don't run the water ahead of time, the humidity is usually high enough that dust is not a problem. Our shower has a door on it so the air is still, and that plus the humidity keeps my negatives dust free during the drying process.

    But don't worry, they get their share of dust later on.

    I lived for a few years near the ocean in SoCal and used to hang my film to dry out on the balcony overnight, salt air, wind blowing, yet my negs were always fine. I have never had any problems with dust on negatives for two decades no matter how I dried them; high humidity, low humidity, hotels, sea air, wind.... I have had issues with water spots, but that is easy to fix. The only dust problems I have had were with sheet film, but those problems had to do with dust on the film before exposure, not after development.

    In other words, don't worry about it too much. If you don't drop your negs on the floor when they are wet, you shouldn't have an issue with dust.
