I live in a small apartment in NYC, so unfortunately I don't have a dedicated stable/shop/man-cave. In fact, I don't even have a place to hose down my bike when I wash it. Whenever I set up my work stand to do some cleaning, maintenance, or repairs I typically spread out a ton of newspapers to catch all the grease and cleaning fluid, which can be a lot. I do this right in the middle of the living room, and it's a whole production.
What do others put under their work stands? Is there a simple solution for this? A guy I ride with uses an old shower curtain, but it seems like that thing would be drippy and messy after just one use.
