The Blower
Our robotics team likes to make a big mess. Bolts, nuts, plastic bags strewn everywhere, and my Shop-Vac picks them all up very happily. Of course, the nature of the team tends to invite unusual cleanups. One of our more productive members was busy tightening a few nuts from underneath our chassis. When he stood up, he ended up looking more like a tree than a person! Head to toe, 360 degrees all around, he was covered in saw dust! Brushing the clinging saw dust did no good, and vacuuming would have taken forever. Thinking quickly, I looked to the one feature of my Shop-Vac that I often forgot even existed: the blower. With proper eye and respiratory protection, the powerful stream of air dislodged any saw dust stuck to his clothing and hair. He was quite thankful, to say the least. As for me, I've learned to never forget the blower feature!

Other great ideas for your Shop-Vac ® Wet/Dry Vac™:

Leading wires through a conduit: Make a "mouse" of sponge or wadded rag with string attached, and use your vac to pull it through. You may have to seal the end of the conduit around the vac's hose with tape or padding.
Picking gravel from the lawn: A vac equipped with a Bulk Dry Pickup Kit is the perfect way to clean up the stones your snow-thrower has tossed into the yard before the mowing starts in the spring.
Retrieving a wedding ring from the drain trap: Dropped something valuable down the drain? Don't bother disassembling the trap and making a mess. Just empty and wipe out the tank of your Shop-Vac® brand Wet/Dry Vac™, and use the vac to pull it out. As a bonus, your drain may run faster afterwards as well!
