Don't drop stuff? I'm not sure what advice you actually want.

I assume this is just, like, ash? If so I just set down a towel I dubbed the hookah towel, catches a ton of ash, so I can just blow it off the bowl (reasonably ofc).

Oke here's what you need: big metal tray to put hookah on. large ashtray on hookah, something metal/ceramic to carry lit coals in without getting burned. Carefull of flamable surfaces ( wood and synthetics get damaged the most - you WILL at least once burn a carpet, coffee table or at least a table cloth). Handle coals gingerly as they tend to split and send burning pieces in every direction ( you will NOT be able to collect them all before the burn a hole thru something). Use common sense and be carefull - Half the joy with shisha is the calm ritual of preparation.

Just handle them carefully. So long as the hookah has a decently sized tray there shouldn't be much of a problem. I suggest using denser coals so that they don't shatter or make really light and flaky ash. That is part of why I like coconut coals.

i like to wet a paper towel and place it in the ash tray, the moisture locks the ash particle down so they dont get carried away, i also ash most commonly in my carrier itself then empty the ashes so the loose stuff isnt really around

my ash tray is big enough to hold the ash when moving the coals.
if there is ash falling down on the ground, i use the vacuum cleaner to clean my room again after smoking.

Just be careful and nothing will happen, don't let any drunk idiots around it and you should be fine.

I usually have a few pieces of foil under my hookah when smoking inside. Friends have knocked over the coals countless times causing burns.

I occasionally smoke indoors. What Ive done to keep things cleaner is.
Get an X-Large KM tray
and if you want you can use a windcover to prevent the coals from falling off .

I have a large cooler usually full of ice with my hookah in it. If ashes and/or coals fall off they fall in the ice(not my carpet), it keeps my water cold, and eliminates almost all chances of fire.

My set up for smoking indoors is a plastic mat the one you use at some offices for your chair to roll on. A metal plate that i randomly found which is great for carrying coals from stove to hookah and a cup of water just in case any little pieces of coal fall onto the floor (carpet, wood floor, rug) Also if you don't have a plastic mat or dont wan't to buy one you can use a car mat if you have any spares. I use to use that when i replaced the mats with weathertec mats in my suv =P
Well hope that will help out =]
