Usually just my rectangular Flow Tool drain pan. Sometimes however, I can tell I'm feeling clumsier than normal like the time I forgot to remove the drain pan before backing the car from under the carport. That was a mess. Since then I often park over a free HF tarp or have a 40 lb. bag of oil dry handy just in case.

Dirt driveway so I do nothing for it; my vehicles don't seem to have real problems getting the vast majority of oil into the pan. Vinyl gloves from HF are cheaper than the cheap latex ones so I use those for my hands.

Cardboard under the catch pan. It makes it easy to slide around on the floor and will catch any drops that miss, which isn't common.

I can manage to pull the pan plug out by hand and never get oil on my hands. But I usually clean the plug (and add a new crush washer), so my hands are washed immediately after anyway. I can't remember ever getting my hand covered with oil. Just fortunate with the vehicles I own.

Several sections from the Omaha World Herald to catch any drips. Not much of a problem with the front end on jack stands. The thing about hot oil is that it is very hard to contain no matter how careful one may be. I usually have more dripping installing the new oil since my Camry has a pita thing partially blocking the fill hole. I believe it is there to catch debris from falling into the valve mechanism, but it prevents a funnel being installed far another not to fall out.
