That was a problem for one of my testers so I ended up doing a poly print. But it's not attached to the soaker. If you get the soaker layer the right absorbancy it prob does not create a problem, but if you say underestimate your flow you could end up with it wicking to your pants.

ETA: Check out my link in my siggy and you're free to use the idea for yourself if it concerns you.
