Behind The Scenes Tour At Good Housekeeping!NEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | 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.
