Behind The Scenes Tour At Good Housekeeping!

NEWS | | November 15, 2009 at 10:06 pm


I had attended a Team Mom blogger’s brunch where Good Housekeeping was one of the sponsors, and they offered guests the opportunity to tour their site. Of course I said yes. I may be behind the times but no one says no to an icon like Good Housekeeping. Although I knew I would be exhausted from being in New York all day (which normally means a 4:00am wakeup call), I was glad to not have to make a separate trip  to be privy to this special tour.

I really wish I was taking notes but I really wanted to take pictures. Aren’t you glad I at least bothered to take pictures. I will just say this that I was proud to hear that other than their magazine advertising they do not accept payment for the Good Housekeeping seal. This gave me a newfound respect in them since I also feel as a reviewer to not take compensation to review and that keeps the review authentic. After seeing the rigorous testing every product goes through: from hair dyes, to skin creams, to comforters, toys, clothing, appliances and everything in between.

They have a hall of shame of products and also those that actually gain honor. So much wonderful indepth knowledge that I can barely remember all (thanks to my lack of note taking). Brands I see everyday I began to see in a new light as they passed or failed the tests.

    I am so sad that I missed this tour. I would have loved to attended but I had to get back home.

    It looks like a really cool place!

    What an awesome opportunity, Mommy Niri. I have always wondered about Good Housekeeping behind the scenes. It looks like so much work, but oh how fun would it be to work there. I am such a product consumer, I would fit in nicely testing and reviewing all those goodies. Thanks so much for the picture. Even if a little town country girl never gets to meet the Big Apple, I at least got to take a little trip in my mind, via your photographs and description. I love your post.

    Hi Niri, I wasn’t able to tag along for this tour, I had to get home to my little boy, but I am glad that I kind of get to experience it via your post. Thanks!
