Businesses have come up with a few interesting products over the years in order to strike it big. There are always those doozies–like blankets with sleeves–that leave consumers thinking that there is not a single person on earth who would buy that. Any yet so many of us do. Here are a couple more that fall into the What-Were-They-Thinking category.
Edible Deodorant: A Belgium-based company recently released its perfume candy line called Deo. This candy claims to take away body odor from the inside out. The website claims that “science and nature have come together to make a functional food that leaves your skin with a beautiful rose fragrance.
Scientists, however, aren’t sure if this is a true statement. It is believed that if one eats a large amount of food with overpowering scents, such as curry or garlic, it could work its way into sweat gland and be released through the skin. The problem is no one has tested this before, because why would they?
As of now, these deodorizing candies can be found in the United States only online. If it seems like too much of a hassle, perhaps we should all stick to regular deodorant.
The Baby Mop: The Baby Mop is a way to have babies help with the housework. Here’s how the product markets: it’s hard to keep the house clean, and you can’t stop babies from crawling, so kill two birds with one stone. The Baby Mop is full-length onesie with mop-like tassels on the arms and legs. As the kids crawl around on the floor, they clean it.
The price of pawning chores onto your newborn is only $40, so it isn’t surprising that the creators, BetterThanPants.com, have seen a steady sale of 60 a day. They expect to see an increase over the holidays.
