The 20 Best Amazon Dash Buttons of 2019

From toilet paper to snacks, here are the Dash buttons everyone needs

Available for Amazon Prime customers, Dash buttons are internet-connected buttons that will change the way you shop. No more forgetting, just seamless ordering. Here are 20 of our favorite uses for a Dash button.

By the way, these don't have to be physical buttons. While those are definitely useful, you can also download virtual Dash buttons to use through Amazon's mobile app or website. It's also worth mentioning that if you'd like something a little more versatile than a single-item button, Amazon also has the Dash Wand, which includes the Alexa voice assistant. Just be aware that while it's more convenient, there are limitations to what Alexa can do through the Dash Wand.

Condoms

This one, admittedly, makes the most sense to me as a Dash button. Condoms are one of those things you don’t typically think about needed until you, well, need them. You’re also often using them late at night, probably with the lights off and far away from your computer. Not exactly a great setup for remembering to reorder. And I assure you, nothing will kill the mood faster than telling your partner you need to log on to Amazon real quick. You could discretely attach a Dash button; however, inside your nightstand drawer and press the button when you realize you’re running low. Problem solved.  

What We Like

  • Promotes safe sex.

  • Works anywhere on your network.

What We Don't Like

  • Same day delivery is not available.

  • Can only order one brand.

Toilet Paper

This is another Dash button that’s exceptionally useful simply because of what it is and where you’re likely to be when you realize you need it. One of these mounted under your bathroom sink means you don’t have to remember you’re a roll away from crisis and ensure that you’re never without a roll when you need it. There are a handful of different Dash buttons available for toilet paper. My personal fave is Charmin.

What We Like

  • Prevents embarrassing situations.

  • Place in any bathroom.

  • Free shipping for prime members.

What We Don't Like

  • Only one brand available per button.

  • Two day delivery.

Diapers

New parents know exactly how fast you can go through packs of diapers. If you don’t have diapers on constant reorder (with a stockpile sitting around just in case), then a Dash button can be a great thing to mount next to the changing table. We all know diaper changing can be . . . an ordeal. With a Dash ​button you can focus on your little one, and avoid a panicked call to friends asking for emergency provisions.

What We Like

  • Conveniently place near the changing table.

  • Saves parents time.

  • Ideal for parents who prefer one brand.

What We Don't Like

  • One brand per button.

  • Easily lost in a nursery.

Right up there with the immediate need for diapers is the one for baby wipes. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these as well so you can handle shopping for both with the press of a button.

  • Amazon brand saves money.

  • Conveniently order when supply is low.

  • Place button right near the changing table.

Ziplock Bags

In general, plastic bags are something most of us go through relatively slowly, slowly enough that you can remember to pick up a box at the store before you run completely out. If you're someone that’s regularly packing lunches; however, then chances are good that you go through bags a little faster than the average person. For you, there’s a Dash button. Put this one in your pantry.

What We Like

  • Conveniently place in the pantry.

  • Order when box is almost empty.

  • Best for customers who prefer one brand.

What We Don't Like

  • Only one brand per button.

  • Need network connection in kitchen.

Zyrtec

Summer allergies are the worst. If you have seasonal allergies, chances are good you don’t rush for the allergy medicine until you’re already having a pretty awful time. The question is, do you have any allergy medicine left over from the last time you had a hard time? If you’re like us, the answer to that question is almost always no. Mounted in a medicine cabinet, the Zyrtec button can help you keep your supply stocked for when you need it the most.

  • Conveniently place in medicine cabinet.

  • Press button when last pill is taken.

Have a pup in the house? Ensure his breath is always fresh and clean with a Greenies Dash button.

Red Bull

Everyone needs a boost of energy now and then. Harried parents can stash one of these in a dresser drawer. And college students everywhere need one of these buttons in their dorm room. Those of us that have a little trouble making it to those group dinners and the like after a long day at work could probably benefit as well.

What We Like

  • Place near fridge for fast orders.

  • Press button when supply is low.

  • Perfect for Red Bull customers.

Tampons

Every woman needs a Dash button for tampons. You only need them once a month, but when you need them you often really need them and somewhat unexpectedly. Depending on how things went the month before, you may or may not have reserves ready to go. And if you’re not in an immediate need of tampons, chances are very good you’re not going to remember to buy them. Stash this in the bathroom so you can reorder the next time you're running low.

  • Press the button once per month.

  • Avoids having to purchase in person in a store.

What We Don't Like

  • Only one brand per button.

  • Not suitable if needs change every month.

Dial Hand Soap

Hand soap is another thing many tend to unexpectedly run out of. Who keeps reserves? When the soap on the bathroom counter runs out, it’s often slightly unexpected. If it means you're breaking into your stockpile of hotel soaps for a day or two, then try a Dash button just for your favorite soap maker.

What We Like

  • Perfect for fans of Dial.

  • Place near sink for easy orders.

  • Never run out of soap.

Snacks! Granola bars can be the perfect thing to grab and go with in the morning on your way to work or school, or take as a snack for the road while you’re traveling or even working out. If you’re not eating them on a specific schedule; however, then it can be easy to accidentally run low. 

What We Like

  • Conveniently place button in pantry.

  • Quickly order when box is almost empty.

What We Don't Like

  • Limited to Nature Valley.

  • One flavor per button.

Trash Bags

Chances are good you can remember to put kitchen garbage bags on the grocery list on the fridge when they run out, but what about all the trash cans you have elsewhere in your house? This Dash button can be customized with a particular type of bag, and then orders can be made with the press of a button. For instance, you could have one in the garage to reorder leaf bags, or in the bathroom to get some new tiny bags for that trash can.

What We Like

  • Conveniently place near garbage cans.

  • Press button when last garbage bag is used.

  • Best for fans of Glad.

Underwear

This is an odd one, but we'd be remiss to not mention it. The Calvin Klein Dash button lets you order a new pair of underwear with the press of a button. Of course, most of us aren’t going through underwear at a speed where we need a reorder button, but hey, if that’s you. . . embrace it with a Dash button.
