I love the ShopVac. And Anthony.

Did you know that if a brand new, unopened bottle of ultra-concentrated laundry detergent falls off the washer while the first load is going and I am jogging, and if the cap breaks, all the contents will efficiently empty itself onto the floor, coating the ENTIRE floor of my laundry room with a 5 mm thick ooze?

As I stepped into the laundry room to change out the loads, I discovered that, because it was quite SLICK!

120 loads worth of ultra-concentrated laundry detergent.

Fortunately, my husband is quite handy with the Shop-Vac (love that thing! it really sucks!) and a Squeegee.  It took hours, but now I have the cleanest laundry room floor EVER.  You could eat off of it.

Also, small silver lining - not a bad smelling mess to clean up.  "Its better than cleaning poop," Anthony astutely observed.  Indeed!  Then he went outside and readied the recyclables.  Awesome.

Sounds like you were both very productive!

Ugh - I spilled just a little car wash soap a while ago in my laundry room and it was such a pain to clean up. Yay for Anthony! Can he come do my recycling too?

Anthony rocks, as always. I remember when you guys were here and Anna threw up in our car. After Anthony got done cleaning it, my car smelled better than ever!
