It might seem like a good idea to bring prophylactics to people since it saves them the trouble of going to the store to get them, but most people take offense to this especially if their children answer the door. You don't want to get involved in a mix up like that.

Selling doors door-to-door is a flawed concept for the simple fact that if someone opens a door then they already have one. The only people who would be interested are people with no doors on their homes in which case that's not technically going door-to-door that's going from no-door-to-no-door. That being said, the best thing to sell no-door-to-no-door is doors.
