There’s a fine line between bizarre and brilliant. This list of bizarre but brilliant products on Amazon are odd yet innovative. People can’t get enough of these weird items and many are pretty genius so I can relate.
My bathroom is filled with mineral salt deodorants, activated charcoal teeth whiteners and oil-based soaps from Amazon. I purify my house with Himalayan salt lamps and burlap sacks of burnt wood. Weird right? It’s pretty weird but I’m here to let you know that these strange products work a lot better than typical products, and that’s why this category is on of my favorites to write about.
