Question No Drip Oil Change

OK - Who has the secret on how to change the oil and it not drip oil before you get the new filter on? 04 Wrangler X 6 cyclinder. Not that I care about a few drops, but it always runs down and onto the exhaust. HELP - What is your solution.

Quick hands and one of them with a rag in it. I always put the drain pan underneath it when I pop the filter off to catch that little bit and then have a rag already sitting there waiting to catch the spillage.

Don't worry it'll burn off in a few seconds. Just like the plastic from my distributor cap that I changed the other day and just remembered that it fell down under the engine. Found it last night when I was changing a motor mount. Oooooops, a little plastic melted on the exhaust never hurt anyone.
