Ash vacuums seem so damn expensive. I'm not paying $175 for one, I'll deal with the dust first. That said, I still would like to do a better job managing the ash mess. Currently I dump my ash pan into a metal bucket and I'm good with that aspect. I want to vacuum the remaining ash from the door, underneath the stove and other places it collects. I don't want to drag my shop vac inside. Is my Dustbuster or my regular carpet vac good enough or will they pass the fine dust and make it worse? I only work with cold ashes. Also, it is really sunny this morning and I am really aware of all the ash dust everywhere. it's bad.
