How do you all clean your vac pots?  In particular, how do you get the
water out of the bottom?

I rinse the carafe and funnel with warm water, sponge out the funnel and ri=
nse again. Then turn them upside down to get the water out of the bottom. S=
orry, but I'm having a hard time imagining a circumstance in which it is di=
fficult to get the water out of the bottom of a coffee pot.

My Chemex has a dish to the bottom. Turn it upside down & quite a bit of
water stays suspended in the inside bottom. it's still wet in the morning.
I have to lay it at an angle, so that every surface is angled so that water
flows out.

I do pretty much the same process... however, even when turned upside
down that bottom piece will still be wet for easily a couple days.  I
don't know that it does any harm, I just wish it were dry faster so
that I could put everything together/away.  I feel like having the
funnel in its little stand isn't as secure as having the whole setup
put together.

I use a paper napkin or paper towel, twist it into the bowl so one end rests on the bottom and the other end remains outside the mouth. This helps dry the bottom and also allows the remaining moisture to be wicked away more quickly. And you can store it that way till next use and reuse the paper many times.

I don't have a stand for my old Silex funnel, so I use the empty Chemex car=
afe -- it is more stable anyway. If the parts of the various brewers are st=
ill damp when I put them away, I don't worry about it. I live in Oregon -- =
everything is damp anyway! I like your paper towel wicking technique, Micha=
el. I will try it next time.

 Your pot is globular?
You'd need to turn it at an angle, almost sideways, to let the water drain
off the bottom. Then turn it upside down, so that the water drains out &
doesn't run across the bottom. That'll let water drain off of the sides.
