You might want to have them all spread out on one big layer somewhere instead of multiple layers. Fan them for 1-2 days, then throw them in a dessicant chamber. If you can't find dessicant, bake or nuke some Epsom Salts till it's a white powder and not cyrstally looking and use that as a dessicant, it works fine.

That sounds good. How long do I have (while sitting in the open air drying) until mold can come into play?

and after they are cracker dry, is it ok to store them in ziplock bags, or tupperware bins? (airtight)

As long as the fan is blowing fresh air on them, one or two days will give you no cause for worry about mold. I would choose tupperware over ziploc bags, as they are not technically air tight. They do allow some gas exchange. I myself just use regular canning jars to store.
