Late-night breakage

Does anybody have suggestions for ways to clean up large, chunky spills with something other than paper towels? I just shattered a full bottle of salad dressing and found myself using a massive amount of paper towels. But it's 1 in the morning, and the thick dressing was all mixed in with shards of glass...I guess I could have used a rag? But what about the glass shards? To add insult to injury, it was a full bottle of Annie's Goddess Dressing (you know, nectar of the gods) that I got on sale. Boo!

what about a shop vac? or a squeegie (sp?) and dustpan?

I have two little kids and lots of large "chunky" messes. I just keep a stash of my old dishtowels in a kitchen drawer, get them wet, wipe up the mess, and toss them in with whatever load of laundry is coming up.

how about one paper towel and a dustpan, just scoop the mess into the dustpan with the paper towel. Scrape the mess into the trash with the same paper towel and wash the dustpan, then maybe use another paper towel (dampened) to go over the area again to avoid stickiness and glass shards.
