While replacing a shifter cable yesterday I discovered that the cable was dripping wet from Saturday's rain storm.  I purged the water by squirting WD40 into the empty cable housing by simply pressing the red straw tube against the cable housing end. I achieved my goal but wasted a lot of WD40 in the process. Anyone have a better solution to purge water from an empty cable housing?

WD is fine.  Compressed air might be a little less messy/wasteful.  Not everyone has an air compressor handy though. I couldn't live without one.
You didn't waste the WD40, it did its job. It was designed for such applications. Now just slather some good grease on those cables and you'll be good to go for months.
