Best way to remove supports

Hi, when I remove the supports, they leave tiny dents. Is there any way to effectively prevent this?

My procedure:

  1. I wash the print in IPA.
  2. Dry it.
  3. Put it in hot water for about 1 min and then remove the supports immediately.
  4. Cure the model.

The dents are not extreme, but they are noticeable.

RE: Best way to remove supports

I try and get the supports off after washing. Without any drying at all. 

But I also get some holes.

I guess the alternate option would be a little nub you have to sand down instead. WIth some other slither there can be otions for adding a ball at the tip of the support for connecting it with the model.

Cant remember which slicer it was (tried it once, didnt liked the handling and deleted it ^^)

Or you can try and just make the tip of the supports very small, but then you have to add more supports
