Join us on a walking tour of the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) where you'll learn how their engineers, chemists, textile professionals, and other scientists evaluate thousands of products each year, from vacuums to cosmetics to swimwear and more. See the state-of-the-art testing equipment they use, see product testing in action and enjoy a fantastic view of Central Park.
The GHI began evaluating products and issuing consumer alerts in 1900 and they’re still at it. The GHI was first called the Good Housekeeping Experiment Station. The invention of electricity had introduced many new labor-saving home appliances but few consumers had any real knowledge of their operation and maintenance.
The staff at the GH Experiment Station tested products and housekeeping methods and published articles about their discoveries and observations.
Today the GHI is staffed by chemists, biologists, nutritionists, engineers, home economists and culinary experts who evaluate thousands of consumer products each year. These reviews are highlighted in the magazine and online and products are evaluated for the Good Housekeeping Seal and the Green Good Housekeeping Seal.
Join us to see how all this is done! Lunch after the tour will be arranged for those interested.
