What's the best way to clean up drywall dust?
I hung and have begun finishing four sheets of drywall in my family room. I have a little Stinger shop vac. I don't want to blow the motor in it nor do I want to spray drywall dust out the blower of the vac, so I'm curious as to what you guys would recommend I use to clean up the drywall dust.

Home Depot sells this device for about $35.00-$40.00 that you fill with water and use your vacuum to suck up the dust with. The dust goes into the water, not the vacuum. It's generally used to sand the drywall as it sucks up most of the dust at that point. but you shuold be able to adapt it temporaraly for such a small job.
It's called, "Sand & Kleen"

By a cloth filter. Sears sells a good one that will fit on your stinger
