Thanks alot for all the comments so far everyone!
Jeanette, that towel idea sounds like a beauty, I'll definatly have to give it a go! As for moving the trays away, I had kind of thought of that but I wasn't sure. I do have a fairly cheap but effective paper safe that I'll be using, so the chances of developer splashing over them would be minimal, but I've got the room to move all three trays about 3/4 of a tray-width away, so I'll do that too just to be on the safe side. As you can see in the first photo in the bottom right corner I have a couple of new house paint buckets that I picked up for a couple of bucks at the local paint shop with the intentions of using them as holding tanks, but thanks for mentioning it!
