The sponge idea is great! Easy to apply and very effective. Thanks!

I keep my filament out in the open like this and I just run it through a sponge on the way through to the printer.  20+ lbs of plastic and never a clogged nozzle yet.

Good point. I think its easy to put a cover plate on the front. I will try this :)

This is a little idea I had last weekend. A storage system that holds all my filament and feeds the printer with the filament pully guide created by Miserybot thingiverse.com/thing:6919

The system works really great and all my worries that a 5 hour overnight print failes due to jammed filament are gone :)

Doesnt that get all the spools dusty?  I mean that while you are using one spool, the others are exposed to dust.  Dust makes burn marks in the printout, and can also jam your nozzle.
