Draining frozen spinach?!

CarmenR | Jan 24, 201305:22 PM     24

HOW is this done without a salad spinner?!
I love spinach and would love to cook with the frozen, chopped variety more often but I have NO idea how to drain it without making a huge mess. Usually, I thaw it in a colander and then press it with my hands, but that squeezes some out of the colander and gets my hands all spinachy. Plus, it's still wet enough to add a substantial amount of water to whatever I'm preparing. I've even gone as far as to spin it through a freaking pillowcase but that made a giant mess and left spinach all over the inside (look, I was desperate.)

There has got to be a trick to this. HELP!
