I'm pretty sure that a lot of you own a wet and dry vac. Ours is a bit different then a lot out on the market. Ours is mostly used in the kitchen, dining room, and sometimes on the patio and, every once in awhile, in the living room.
If it is liquid, food crumbs, or any type of food, it gets sucked up so fast that there is never a five second rule -- or even a two second rule. 'Course, it won't clean up dog hair or dirt. Or suck up water if your basement floods.
