FORTY-THREE OF FIFTY-TWO: my ShopVac.
I've owned my ShopVac for 15+ years and I love it.
I originally wanted a ShopVac so that I could vacuum the inside of my car at home rather than going to the car wash. I still use if for that prpose and it works well and is very handy.
Since I first got my ShopVac I've come to realize that it's perfect for so many taks inside the house as well.
In the house I use my ShopVac to clean in tight spaces, to clean window sills, to clean inside cupboards and to suck up all of the "gunk" left behind after using the self-cleaning feature on my oven.
The reason I find it so handy is that it is very powerful. My vacuum cleaner has a hose and attachments that I could use for all of the tasks listed above, but it's not nearly as powerful which makes it less effective.
My ShopVac is a wet/dry vac, so the one time that I had a water problem (my dishwasher leaked) I was able to suck up all of the standing wather which was very effective and made the job so much easier.
My ShopVac. It's one of the things I love.
