*This post is not sponsored however Porter-Cable kindly sent us the 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum for us to try.
When Ian told me that a new (what we refer to as) "shop vac" was coming I really didn't think too much about it. None of Ian's tools really interest me so this was no different. But within a few meer hours upon arrival of the new PORTER-CABLE 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum I was proven wrong... way, way wrong.
You see, we have three children. Three SMALL children. And two of the three SMALL children are BOYS. Boys are messy.
Our oldest son has a tendency to break everything in his vicinity into trillions of tiny pieces and our youngest son has a history of emptying the entire contents of garlic powder (Costco Sized) into the floor vent of our kitchen. Hopefully this paints an image of what we are dealing with on a daily basis.
Moving right along..... In the past I would use my broom and dust pan or if the mess was big enough I'd ask Ian to bring in one of his large and awkward to carry shop vacuums to plug in and take care of business. O but times they are a changing and the PORTER-CABLE 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum is THE GAME CHANGER for me! Let me just list of some of my favorite things.
- It's small but not too small. 2 gallons is the perfect size for me to store in my hallway closet as well as, not a big deal at all, carrying it up and down the stairs, going from one mess to another. That being said it's still big enough to hold an entire box (again, costco sized) of spilled Cheerios.
- It's cordless. I should capitalize this. IT'S CORDLESS. Ugh, it's just so convenient. My oldest son left the window down in my car (unbeknownst to me) the night of a really heavy thunderstorm. I just walked my new wet/dry vaccum out to the street to soak up the water from the soggy floor mats. I should also point out that on this same day I stored the PORTER-CABLE 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum in the trunk of my car and while we were running errands I was able to quickly vacuum up the kids snack crumbs while parked at the grocery store.
- Onboard accessory storage. This is so important to me. It's just so compact! No unnecessary attachments to store away for me to never find again. Only 2 attachments, the crevice tool and the wide nozzle tool and they both have their perfect little storage space on the vacuum unit. Boom, always there!
-The filter is washable. Literally just spray it with the hose. That's it! Easy!
I feel like I've found a new market for wet/dry vacuums. The PORTER-CABLE 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum for the "busy mother"!
(I am sure other mothers use these but it's very new and exciting for me)
