* The products are weird and somewhat useful
* From odor removers to hilarious kitchen hacks
* Plus some former Shark Tank favorites
The everyday meets the weird in these nine strange products right out of a game of “Three Things.” For those of you “millennials” who were busy optimizing yourselves and missed out on the suburban boredom of growing up, Three Things was a game where you picked a big store and tried to think up the three weirdest and/ or most embracing things to bring up to the cash register.
Amazon is, of course, way better for this, only you don’t get to imagine the look on the cashier’s face. Well, perhaps one day we’ll get snickering drones. Until then, here are nine of the weirdest, zaniest and surprisingly useful everyday products out there.
Nerdwax sounds like it could be so many things. In this case, it’s a solution to keep your slightly oversized glasses from slipping off your face.
2. Squatty Potty
As seen on Shark Tank, this is a footstool for making stool. It purports to improve your toilet posture and help you poo smoothly. It also has one of the zaniest infographics on all of Amazon. If there’s another product out there that promises a “fecal fiesta,” we’re not sure we want to know about it.
3. Rub Away
No, it’s not the smallest, cheapest Jeff Koons sculpture, but this stainless steel “bar of soap” is way more useful. Rubbing it, with or without water, apparently removes the smell of onions and fish from your hands after cooking.
4. Bogeyman Egg Separator
An egg separator is a useful hack for health-minded home cooking, letting you have egg white omelets with ease. Even better? This one is shaped like a troll’s head and the whites run out its nose. You know, so you can lose your appetite just before cooking.
5. Spatty Daddy
Another Shark Tank alum, this bottle and tube spatula is for getting the last drop out of sauces, cosmetics, hair care and tooth care bottles.
6. Go Girl
Stand and deliver with this portable urinal funnel. Because the line for those filthy bathrooms at shows and festivals may be the one place Freudian “penis envy” actually is a thing. Duchamp would approve.
7. Fabric Shaver and Lint Remover
Have a sweater or coat that you don’t wear anymore because it’s just too pilly? This fabric shaver and hi-powered lint remover will give your threadbare fuzzes a new lease on life.
8. Poo Pourri
Nobody likes pooping as a guest. But Poo Purri aims to make the experience a little less crappy, or at least less smelly. The non-toxic formula aerosolizes with the flush and obscures the usual odor.
