Hi Dave
I have this problem at work, we don't have good washing/drying/pressing for FB at the shop so do those steps at home. I give the prints a rinse then put them in a tray with a enough water to keep thing wet. I have used up to 16x20's in 16x20 trays. I then slip the tray in a plastic bag big enough for the tray and enough to fold the bag back over the tray. My commute is 25 miles ( one way ) and a ferry ride. I have never trusted blotters, blotter books or rolls and never trusted paper towels.

I have never had damaged prints or a leak.
