May 30, 2009 at 4: 56 AM hmmm ... i'm trying to calculate the amount of time it would take me to dredge up my wet/dry shop vac from the basement crawlspace, find some panty hose (that my wife wouldn't be tee'd off I'm wrecking), connect it all up and give this a go - versus simply putting some towels down, undoing the joint on the pipes to see if it's in there.
It seems a poor arrangement to have it in 'vac.,' doesn't it?
Usually it is a quick run over with the vac is the best you can get.
If your item is already wet, why not just let it go into the shop vac?
I have an attachment for my foodsaver that lets you vac-seal ordinary mason jars which makes sealing liquids a snap ... works on half-pint, pint and quart sized jars!
Also buy italian sausage and steaks in bulk from costco and vac seal with no freezer burn issues.
Pour a healthy amount of baking soda down the drain, followed by vinegar, let it bubble for a couple seconds, then turn on the vac.
Since most traps can be removed by hand without even using a wrench, no need to invoke the wet dry vac and pantyhose.
Remember to block the overflow hole, you can also change your hose to "blow" on the shop vac if you don't want to see what comes up.
A: I have 1 manual ceramic cone filter, 1 Hario vac pot, 2 moka pots, 3 espresso machines, 1 French press, 1 Vietnamese filter pot.
