In case you have missed the previous awesome articles about Weird things for sale on Amazon you can find Part 2 at Weird Things Part 2 and Part 1 at Weird Things Part 1.
Tonight's version of Weird Things for sale is kicked off by a great suggestion from a friend with her asking me to look up a Shewee.... Now this product is a great starter, but I decided to use a similar product the "Go Girl" since it seems to be more versatile and have more add-ons. In case you are like me and had NO idea what a shewee was, let me introduce you to the Go Girl.
Go Girl Female Urination Device
In case that title didn't give you enough details, This urination device is able to be worn around your neck on a lanyard. It comes with baggies and wipes. The product description isn't overly detailed, I
guess the assumption was made that the title should really tell you all that you need to know. So let's head to a few reviews to see what people had to say about this product.
"I peed standing up; three times! Let me explain. I go hiking and
off-roading frequently and there is always the issue of having to find a
secluded place off the trail where I can drop trou and pee. It gets
really annoying; not to mention the danger to my naughty bits (poison
oak, ivy, spiders and mosquitos). There is the added awesomeness of not
having to squat over a nasty public toilet for those of you that attend
concerts or other large public access events/places. So I purchased
(from Amazon) three different brands of "female urinary tools". The
Urinelle (pack of 7 for $14.03), the P-mate (pack of 5 for $6.79) and
the Go-Girl (1 with carrying case for $13.95). The Urinelle looks like a
slightly altered paper cone you would normally see next to a water
dispenser; it is bio-degradable but I felt was the least effective (I
was also laughing really hard so I will use this brand again to
confirm). The P-Mate is also bio-degradable, made of a thin cardboard
and trapezoid-like in shape it was user friendly and you can dispose of
it in a port-a-potty or pit toilet. It also folds in half or lies flat
for convenient carrying. The Go-Girl is made of latex and reusable, and
very easy to use. Over all I recommend the Go-Girl since you never have
to worry about having one on hand for those spontaneous walks/rides in
nature. Now I can just stand off in the trees like the guys do and maybe
even write my name in the snow. " -Zz Norton
*I am still a little confused after this review, do you pee into a bag or does the pee just come right out when you go. It seems like there is a slight bit of Freudism here and also a large bit of germophobe, I can definitely see how it can come in handy though. I have to laugh that the most used public place she could think of was a concert (she must have had a bad experience at some point haha.
"I loved having the carrying case and wipes that this came with. I
attempted to get the funnel back into the plastic tube it came in, and
despite following the instructional video on their website, struggled.
The pink tube is larger, easy to get the product in, and nice and
discreet as it sits in my purse. The device itself is a soft, flexible
funnel, and I was able to use it without problems on the first try. I
was wary of just "letting it flow" based off of reviews indicating that
some people have had overflow when urine didn't exit the little spout
fast enough--it appeared to drain quickly, and was incredibly clean. I
love the product (I hike and bike in all sorts of areas that don't have
restrooms), and definitely like this little set as a starting place. -J. Shelton"
*I always love an honest review, and I think that this one answered my previous questions...

Braza Secret Stash Detachable Bra Pocket
I am guessing that it is pronounced like A-Ha as in you just discovered something haha. It is "A lingerie pocket that attaches to the plunge of your bra, the hip of your panties, or your bra's wing" although it does require hand washing.
"Bought this for my trip to Brazil. Best idea ever! Those stupid
travelers belts that go around your waist are super uncomfortable,
especially in 105 degree heat. The bra wallet is much more comfortable,
and while you can't fit your passport in it, you really don't need to
have your passports with you all the time. Plus it's a bit more subtle
to quickly flip it out of your boobs than to have to lift up your whole
shirt with a belt. Another advantage of the bra wallet over the waist
belt is that you can wear under everything! (some low cut tops are
problematic) But dresses are no problem. I imagine turtlenecks might
pose a problem... but who wears turtlenecks anyways?
include, occasionally people can see it, especially if you're wearing
something tight or low cut, or bend over. And when you have to get your
money out, it can be awkward, or when you have to strap it back in. The
plus of this, is that even if people can tell where your money is, they
probably won't be able to steal it.
Also, if you have too much stuff in it, (cards/change/ect) the bulge can be quite noticeable.
if you have small breasts, this might not be the product for you. I
don't know, if you only kept cash in it, it would probably be fine. It's
pretty thin just by itself.
Overall, I recommend! Well priced, and very very handy." -sarah
* As someone who is constantly storing stuff in her bra, I actually think this is an excellent product idea, and would totally try it out.
"I am pleased with this little "bra pocket". I placed it by my hip, on my
pantie, under my jeans. I can barely feel it is there. I can easily fit
5 paper bills in cash, folded in half- the pocket can stretch slightly,
and 3 credit cards. I'm sure I could actually fit more cash, since the
pocket is stretchy, but that is what fits comfortably. I did not try it
on my bra, since I wear a sports bra, and I didn't think it would work
out well with this. I did place a safety pin over the velcro closure,
including the flap, since I didn't quite trust velcro to secure my
valubles. I could not feel the safety pin. ( which of course is
* I definitely appreciate the thoroughly descriptive review that Nicketti gave here with exactly how much can be stored in it. Overall not THAT weird, and actually somewhat useful.

Runny Nose Shower Dispenser Gel
I have seen this one multiple times in my past browsing for weird things for sale on Amazon but it always kind of grossed me out, so I decided not to write about it until now. I know I am over thinking the visuals here but ewww. The features are as follows: "A funny nose shaped shower gel dispenser. Just squeeze the nose, and gel will ooze out from the right nostril." I have to wonder, why
only the right nostril, seems weird to me.
"My teenager saw this online and couldn't stop talking about having it in
his shower so I purchased it as a Christmas gift. (far be it for me to
negate what he finds humorous despite how goofy it might be!) He was
excited to put it up and try it out, and did so right after opening it.
Half an hour later we went to check it out again and it had leaked the
soap inside of it all down the wall of his shower. Thinking that he had
incorrectly filled or attached it, we took it down, emptied it, cleaned
it & the shower up, then refilled and attached it to the wall. Half
an hour later, same problem. The seal between the rubber nose and
plastic backing that attaches to the wall is no good. Nothing we did took care of the broken seal. Huge disappointment and not worth the
postage to even return. Turned out to be a runny nose, not a soap
dispenser. And I had to clean the shower twice on Christmas. Nice." -Mami
*Seems to me that this is more of a gag than a practical gift anyway.
"My son loved this gag gift. the soap does leak out a little and run
down the shower wall, but, no worries, it just looks like snot. we also
used just plain shower get when the green soap ran out, which worked,
but the thicker the better. The suctions cups stick better to ceramic
tile vs our glass shower door."
*Some great tips on how to make it useful, I also saw other reviews that suggested turning it upside down when not in use to prevent leaking.

Decodyne Sir Tea Infuser
This product description had me rolling: "Sir Tea is your perfect tea time companion. Load his little silicone pants and place him in your cup." The endless possibilities of things that come to mind that you could load his little pants up with.....
"Great little tea infuser that can start a conversation even before
you're put it in the cup. Easy to clean and doesn't leave a weird taste
in your tea like others I've tried." -chana
*Although this was the only review for the product it is adorable and if it does what it claims to do, I would definitely buy it and load his little pants up ;)

Blue Q Breath Spray
With this product you can do a multitude of things (at least according to advertisement) such as: remember the names of everyone that you have slept with, communicate with your dad, understand your mom, enjoy your job, positive energy,Instant rehab, instant therapy, accept aging etc. Man if this stuff is for real I definitely want a few of these. The aging product description is as follows: "Just one spray gets you back to what you should be doing.
Passionately experiencing life and walking into the mystery of tomorrow." The Enjoy your job spray is described as: "Realistically interact with clients and colleagues while in a controlled hibernative brain state!" The positive energy one advertises: "Instantly heightens your inner magnetism so that wonderful things can't help but come your way. It's like you're magic!"
On the Communicate with Dad Spray: "I was told to give at least 24 hours for the spray to go through the
system but WOW! After just 13 minutes of entering my mouth I felt a
change IMMEDIATELY! I couldn't run to the phone fast enough! I quickly
called my old man and asked how his day was! Hell, I even asked if I can
go on the route with him. Ya know, learn a couple a tricks on the
truck. Know what I mean?? So we're sitting at a local truck stop-off 95,
we're bulls***tin, talkin bout getting my CDL, getting me a harley,
s*** goin all nice. All of a sudden I'm starting to think, who the heck
is this guy and why am I here? Luckily, I had my spray on me and quickly
reapplied. WHEW! This s*** does wonders. I was able to order a lifetime
supply, just hope I don't get immune to this. Whoever invented this,
God bless your soul. You're saving daddy issues all over the world! I
rate this product 10 stars!" -Marisa
*Either this spray actually works, or it serves as a mental release for her to really be able to communicate with her father. Either way the end result is what matters, so in that case the spray is effective :)
On the Believe in God Spray: "It took one little spritz.. My breath was fresher, mintier, and the
taste of cigarettes was absolutely gone. I felt like I was kissing the
holy mother herself. I got this strange sensation, waving through my
whole body like electricity. Colors became brighter, everything was
more vivid. Anything that moved left lingering, blurred trails. And
then it happened.. I saw god.. He had long hair and a beard, loose
fitting clothing and resembled my hippy roomate. He said "hey man! did
you see a little spray bottle full of mint? I've been looking all over
for it and I really need to find it now or we'll be late for the Phish
concert." I handed it to god, a little hesitantly, who just just smiled
and laughed. "Thanks dude, have a nice trip!" He even knew I had a
long car ride ahead of me, but of course he did.. What a nice guy!" -Gerald Peters
*It sounds like somebody's breath spray may have been laced with a little something... whatever works right???
