Best Small Vacuum IMO

Stinger Vacuum From Home Depot. I used one on a daily basis cleaning lint out of dryers, two or three a day most days of the week.

When a customer of mine showed me his compared to what I was using at the time my very next stop was Home Depot without any hesitation.

Its Achilles heel though is the switch. But then I abused mine too. I think each switch lasted about three years though, practically everyday use. Finally got smart and just bought a bigger switch and taped it in place. Carved out the opening a bit and had to solder wires on it. I figure I am smart enough not to get electrocuted by it. Put a switch on the others I had in the garage and gave to my brother and neighbor. They used to only be $30 but I see they have gone up a bit now. When the switch went I was not sure if it was the motor or switch and did not have time to troubleshoot. Off to HD and grab another.

Not too bulky either. I even had a fair amount of customers ask about it. Right size and power. Just what we need.

Never used the wet side of it so can not vouch for that. Had a shop vac for that.

Years ago they were on sale at Lowe's for some incredible price; under $10 IIRC. I got one for each of my kids. A year or two ago I had to clean up around my attic heat pump and borrowed one back, for the convenience. Absolutely a great choice.
