Years ago, I remember getting a Shop-Vac for a wedding present. A few people who were at the gift opening chuckled as it seemed a funny present to give someone for their wedding, but I was stoked. I was happy because home remodeling projects were my relaxation technique and just about every one of them made a mess. I guess it’s still the little boy in me that’s just not happy until he’s made a mess because it means that he’s accomplished something.
Funny thing is, I never thought about hooking my Shop-Vac up to a precision instrument like my hair trimmer. To me, it seems like hooking the spray nozzle on your sink up to a pressure washer. Sure, it would blast the food off of your dishes, but would probably take most of the enamel with it. So why go overboard? Cutting your hair is a project that makes a mess, too, so you have a few options.
- You can cut your hair in the middle of the yard and hope the hair just blows away.
- You can drag your gigantic vacuum cleaner out of the closet and duct tape it to your trimmer.
- You can drag your gigantic vacuum cleaner out of the closet after you’re done and clean off your floor, yourself, your cat, and anything else within 10 feet of you.
- You can get an AirCut, which is a haircutter and a vacuum all in one handheld unit.
