Recently I've been binge-watching the excellent Netflix series Atypical. In one episode, someone drops a gallon of milk in the kitchen, resulting in moo-juice going everywhere. Someone else grabs a roll of paper towels, but let's face it: That kind of spill is going to need real cleaning.
Something like a Tineco wet-dry vacuum. This thing handles both wet and dry messes, and it doubles as a hand vac. Regularly $450, the Tineco Floor One S5 Combo can be yours for $360 when you apply promo code PRDEALS5C at checkout. This is only the second discount ever for this product, and it's the largest on record. (Previous best deal: $382.)
At first glance, the Floor One S5 looks like a fairly traditional upright vacuum, but it's really more of a floor washer. In place of the usual brush-type roller you see under most vacuums is a solid, fuzzy roller designed to seriously scrub a hard floor.
The Floor One employs two tanks: One that holds clean water (and a dash of Tineco's cleaning solution) and another for the dirty water that gets sucked up.
But this is a hand vac, too: You just push a button to release the upper part, then snap in a crevice tool or 2-in-1 brush tool. (These items reside in a standalone storage tray when not in use.)
The vacuum itself docks in a charger/stand that also allows for self-cleaning, again with the push of a button.
I recently got the chance to test-drive the S5 Combo, and here's what I can tell you: It works really well on wet or sticky floors, but it's kind of a complicated device — at first, anyway. There's just a lot going on here. For starters, there's a companion app — yes, this vacuum has Wi-Fi — that can provide maintenance updates and cleaning reports, but do you really need that? I say skip it.
I also had a hard time figuring out the various status indicators on the digital display, which indicate things like eco mode and dirt monitoring. Call me old-fashioned, but I find that stuff superfluous. Just suck up the spilled milk and be done with it, vacuum!
Even so, if you have a little kids, pee-prone animals or other liquid-mess creators, there's no question the S5 Combo is a great tool to have on hand. And the hand vac is a superb addition.
Already own one of the latter? There's a higher-end Tineco model that doesn't have the hand-vac option, instead offering more suction power, larger water tanks and longer battery life. You can get the Floor One S5 (non-Combo version) for $400 (save $100) with promo code PRDEALS5.

India's top court on Thursday ordered a one-year jail term for cricketer-turned-lawmaker Navjot Singh Sidhu for a road-rage assault case that killed a man over 30 years ago. Sidhu, who until recently served as the head of the main opposition Congress party in the state of Punjab, was accused by an eyewitness of pulling the deceased out of his car and killing him with a blow to the head in December 1988. The Supreme Court in 2018 ordered the former state lawmaker to pay a fine of 1000 rupees ($12.91) for voluntarily hurting a person.
