Amazon Keeps Selling Out Of These 45 Things That Are Effing Amazing

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

There are a few rules I always follow when shopping online. For starters, always read the reviews; they’ll tell you if whatever you’re looking at is worth the money. Two, make sure to always check how long it’ll take to be shipped. But the most important rule of all? If Amazon — one of the largest retailers on the planet — keeps selling out of something, then you can rest assured that something is effing amazing.

The only problem is that it’s not always easy to find these constantly sold-out products — but don’t worry. Not only is this list filled with items that are always flying off the shelves, but I’ve also made sure that everything in here is genuinely useful. Case in point? The clothes steamer that melts away creases. I like to take it with me on vacation, as I’ve never opened up my suitcase to discover fresh, wrinkle-free clothes. Right now, you can grab it for less than $30 — but be careful: I’ve seen it go out of stock more than once.

But if that isn’t enough? There are also slip-resistant hangers covered in velvet, popcorn poppers for your microwave, and even a mattress topper infused with cooling gel. In fact, I’m surprised some of these amazing products are still available.

Better add a few to your cart while they’re still in stock.


The Pillowcases That Are Gentle On Hair

If you always wake up with unwanted frizz in the morning, try switching out your cotton pillowcases with these satin ones. Satin creates less friction against your strands than cotton, which can help tame morning frizz overnight. Plus, they come in dozens of colors to match your current sheets.


A Clothes Steamer You Can Take With You

I’ve never opened my suitcase to find freshly-pressed clothes — that’s why I always travel with this clothes steamer. Wrinkles melt away as you move it all over your pants and shirts. Plus, you can even use it to disinfect questionable surfaces in your hotel room.


These Hangers Coated With Soft Velvet

The velvet coating on these hangers isn’t just gentle on your clothes — it also helps prevent them from sliding off. The smooth edges wont’ leave behind creases, and they’re strong enough to hold up heavier garments. Choose from three colors of velvet: black, grey, or ivory.


A Mosquito Repeller That’s DEET-Free

Tired of mosquitos on your patio? This gadget doesn’t rely on any DEET to keep flying pests at bay — instead, it uses an unscented repellent that’s virtually undetectable to humans or pets. Plus, each order comes 12 hours’ worth of refills to keep you protected all season long.


The Hot Air Brush That Adds Volume To Limp Roots

When your roots refuse to tease up from your scalp, it might be time to break out this hot air brush. The tufted bristles let you curl it in close to your scalp without burning yourself — and there are even three heat settings to suit every type of hair. “It makes my hair so soft and amazing,” wrote one reviewer. “And it dries it so quickly.”


A Popcorn Popper That Works In The Microwave

You don’t need to use a bulky air popper the next time you want fresh kernels — just use this microwaveable version. It’s made from tough borosilicate glass that’s shock-resistant, and it only takes about three minutes to wind up with a full bowl of popcorn. Choose from two sizes: individual, or family.


This Diffuser Made For Your Car

Even when you’re driving, you can still enjoy the soothing scents of your favorite essential oils with this diffuser. It plugs into any USB port — though each order also comes with an adapter for your cigarette lighter — and the automatic shut-off keeps you safe when the water runs dry.


A Mattress Topper Infused With Cooling Gel

If you’re a hot sleeper like me, a cooling mattress topper — like this one — is an absolute gamechanger. It’s infused with temperature-regulating gel beads that siphon heat away from you, helping you stay cool when you’re getting warm. Plus, the memory foam material contours to your body for added comfort.


These Hydrocolloid Patches To Help Hide Blemishes

The next time you wake up with a surprise blemish, just pop one of these patches on top of it. The hydrocolloid dressing works to absorb it, helping to flatten out unwanted breakouts within about eight hours. And since they’ve got matte finishes, you’ll barely know they’re there.


A Portable Fan You Can Wear Around Your Neck

Whether you’re relaxing on the couch or jogging around the block, this neck fan can help you stay cool. Its lightweight design won’t weigh you down, nor will it leave your neck feeling sore over time. The best part? The rechargeable battery lasts for up to 16 continuous hours.


The Dishcloths That Are Eco-Friendly

Since these dishcloths are made from biodegradable cellulose, consider them an eco-friendly alternative to plastic scrubbers and sponges. They also have some grit to them — which is great for scrubbing tough crud from dirty pans — and each one can even absorb up to 20 times its weight in water.


A Pair Of Coasters Made For Cupholders

Take a good look at the cupholders in your car — are they as clean as they could be? If not, put these coasters down after you’ve given them a good wipe. They’re made from moisture-absorbing neoprene, which will help keep them free of dust and grime. Plus, they even come in more than 15 patterns.


This Precision Razor That’s Perfect For Your Brows

Looking for a razor you can use to shape your brows? This one has a precision blade that’s perfect for removing individual hairs — and the micro guard even helps prevent accidental nicks. Or, you can even use it with lotion to gently exfoliate away old skin.


An Ice Cream Maker That Does The Work For You

Some ice cream makers require you to shake and stir your way to dessert — but not this one.

The Mesh Bags That Keep Your Laundry Sorted

Not only do these mesh bags keep your clothes from getting knotted together in the wash, but they’re also great for keeping your colors and whites separate.

Snacks, sandwiches, soup — no matter what you’re packaging, these food bags are a great pick. The leakproof seal makes them suitable for freezing liquids, and they’re made without any BPA or PVC. The best part? One bag can be reused enough times to replace up to 300 plastic ones.
