What a fascinating day I spent touring the Good Housekeeping Research Institute in New York. They evaluate thousands of items from vacuums to cosmetics to swimwear, coffeemakers, and more. There is a huge staff of chemists and scientists.They check tens of thousands of products every year, to see if they perform the way that they claim.
If you’re in New York, you might want to get a behind the scenes tour for yourself.
