Double gasket problems on oil filter

I have an 06 Gt. I changed the oil on sat. Didn't notice the gasket from the previos oil filter was left on. Made it about a block and the oil pressure light came on. Pulled over and sure enough oil everywhere. I pulled off the filter and 2 gaskets dropped down. Now I have changed a lot of oil and I have never experienced this. Lucky I put on a new filter and filled the oil back up and she still seems to be purring like a kitten. Here are my questions. Anything I should watch out for as an indicator that something is wrong with the motor from this? 2. What I the best product for getting all the oil off everything.

You should be fine as long as you didn't keep driving with that low of oil. Same thing happened to my moms '08 escape two years ago. She's still running fine

Just be sure the gasket comes off with the filter and then lube the gasket on the new filter so it won't stick next time and you'll be set

I bought a Wix. I am trying to decide if I should change to Royal Purple next time.

Wix makes good stuff! And absolutely not! Royal Purple is vastly overrated and their oil provides little protection. Check out any independent study and examination of various oils and RP doesn't score very high. Pennzoil ultra is the best oil on the market!

Saw this happen a number of times with spin-on filters back when I worked in a service station during my college years. The boss taught us all the clean the gasket sealing area on the block with a rag before installing the new filter. If there was a gasket left behind, you'd surely find it this way before it was too late.

The old GM canister filters were really the worst, they would leave the gasket behind every time and they'd be down in a recessed, hard to access area forcing you to pick it out of there with a sharpened awl. Kept one in the shop at all times specifically for this issue.
