Apr 19, 2013

Even though it originated in 1909, the Good Housekeeping Seal is far from being a relic of your mother’s or grandmother’s era.

The Seal has been reassuring consumers about their product-purchasing decisions for over 100 years and is one of the most recognized consumer emblems in the market today.

CBS Sunday Morning News recently went behind the scenes to see just what it takes for a product to earn it. Watch the video.

The Good Housekeeping Research Institute evaluates just about anything anybody (especially women) might consider buying, from blenders to bathing suits to garage doors.

Clopay garage doors earned the Good Housekeeping Seal in 1996. Door shown: Canyon Ridge Collection Limited Edition Series, Design 13, REC13 windows in Mahogany.

Clopay has the distinction of being the only residential garage door brandto hold the Good Housekeeping Seal for the last 17 years. Many people mistakenly believe the Seal is an endorsement, when in fact it symbolizes a two-year warranty. That means if the product is defective within two years of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace the item or refund the consumer, even if the product also has a manufacturer’s warranty.

This promise is unique in the marketplace. As the Wall Street Journalnoted, "Good Housekeeping puts its own money behind its recommendations. No other government agency does that."
