Homemade Shop Vac Filters

Don't spend money on shop vac filters. Use the "panty" part of pantyhose after cutting off the legs and tying them off.

I must respectfully disagree. Although being very economical, panty hose are very poor filters. everything smaller than the largest opening in the mesh will be sucked through and blown out into the house. I think you could avoid many potential problems by using REAL hepa filters. Industial filter pads are cheaper in bulk. check the

specs and government ratings . Don't go too small with filter pores, or your vac moter will suffer. A prefilter and maybe panyhose (hey) will help the filter's longevity. Totally worth it. Trust me, I'm Particle Man

For dry pick-up around the house I just wrap some toilet paper around the foam and secure it with rubber bands. When I finish vacuuming I remove the toilet paper and throw it out or flush it.
