40 strange (but genius) things selling out fast on Amazon

Online shoppers are usually great at seeking out the deals. When something is awesome and inexpensive, they find it. And then —somehow — the word gets out. After that, it flies off the shelves. In fact, tons of Amazon products sell out fast like that. Whether those are storage items, smart devices, or even cool toiletries, they're usually out of stock sooner than later. There's a good reason for it, though: All those items are strange but genius.

Sometimes, I'll end up with something quite odd in my shopping cart — and to my surprise, it usually ends up being one of my favorite products. For instance, I challenge you not to end up entirely rethinking homemade ice pops, condoms for wine bottles, and portable washing machines (because, yes, they do exist). I also predict that you'll decide storing seasonal blankets without taking up too much space is actually easy — and that purchasing a Green Gobbler will help whenever there's a clog in your sink.

I'm not making any of this up — these products are readily available. Many Amazon shoppers know how genius they really are — and if you don't add them to your cart sooner than later, they might sell out.

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.
