What is the best way to easily (or more easily) clean my dog's paws when she comes in from our rain soaked yard and they are all muddy?

When my dog (a 90 pound mix) comes back inside now, during our lovely wet California winter, her paws are, more often than not, caked thick with clay mud. She tolerates me wiping them off but its a pain in the butt and I'd love to find a better way to do this. And we end up going through alot of towels too.
Any insights would be welcome.
Some thoughts I've had or tried. I've used a bucket of water just outside the door to swish her paws in before I wipe them and it cuts down on the muddiness alot but is also a pain in the butt. I've considered astroturf from the edge of the deck to the door to help clean her paws out too but would like feedback on that first.
