Packer Helper
Instead of buying those expensive bags to seal clothes, blankets, pillows, etc. I simply use my regular trash bags and use my Shop Vac to suck the air out and fasten it shut. I tried this with a regular vacuum cleaner and it just doesn't work nearly as well. This is just one of the many handy things I have come up with through the years to use my Shop Vac for and to be quite honest with you, it still works great, but as much as I use it, it is a bit beat up and I could use a new one. Thanks for letting me share my story.

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!
