I believe it was Julia Child who used a pillowcase. Seemed pretty effective.

When using a salad spinner, spin once, remove lettuce, drain water from container. Spin lettuce a second time. Don't stuff lots of lettuce in the dryer. Better to do multiple batches than try and spin it all at once.

Put the spun lettuce in a colander or other container with good air circulation so the bottom isn't sitting in what little water remains.
Are we talking "at home" here or in a restaurant setting?

Commercial salad spinners can have motors that use centrifugal force to get the water out.

Others are hand spun. I agree with the paper towel idea and multiple spins.

Great post chefwriter.
