Easy Toggle anchor clean up

When installing toggle anchors for towel bars, the last thing you want to do is lug around a vac. Instead, it carry a roll of 2" blue painters tape. Simply fold the tape back to the non sticky side (about a 6" long piece is fine), apply one half of the tape to the wall about 1" down from the hole. Keep your drill speed slow and the dust will fall onto the tape. Gently pull the tape off so that the dust stays on, fold it in half and stick it in your pocket and you're done.

I use a small envelope taped under area to be drilled and that works as well. but i always have the 2" blue tape.
