39 Weirdo Products On Amazon That Keep Selling Out (Like $20 Salt Blocks For Your Feet)
Two things are true about great products: they don't have to cost a fortune to be effective and labeling them as "weird" sometimes simply means they are uniquely addressing a problem you never knew you had. These 40 weird products on Amazon that keep selling out are proof of that.
All of the bizarre products on this list share something in common: customers have looked right past their quirkiness to come to the conclusion that they are so helpful in addressing one or more of their needs. Even better: these affordable products have the kind of following you'd expect from items that cost triple the price.
So, what can you expect to find on this weird list?
How about an acne clearing lotion for your butt or a money-saving spatula that digs up every last drop of lotion or serum from bottles and jars? There's also miscellaneous products like a wearable umbrella hat, a back-stretching device, and a battery charger that can charge up to eight batteries at once.
Whether you're in the market for a better pillowcase that won't give you bed head or you could really use an inflatable seat cushion that makes your office chair more comfortable, this is the list where you'll find unusual — and unusually useful products.
