Better way to clear out payload before calling another service besides change nodes?

This has been causing bugs as the previous service calls override the settings in the new service call so in this example the light wasn’t getting reset or off as the turn_on was getting passed down to the new service calls. The Clear change nodes fix it but it just makes the flow larger and I have to remember to add this everywhere this happens. Is there another way to get around this?

This flows changes a light red, waits 20 seconds, resets it back to normal and then turns it off.

You can set Output Location to None in those Call Service nodes and remove the Change nodes.
