Good Housekeeping is the go-to resource for millions of women – and now the magazine’s expert advice is available on the App Store with the Good Housekeeping @Home App. The Good Housekeeping @Home App is the perfect resource for the juggling act of a busy home life. Good Housekeeping’s first app features do-it-all cleaning tips, in-depth stain removal advice, simple and elegant decorating ideas and a complete directory of Good Housekeeping Seal products. Good Housekeeping @Home also automatically updates regularly with news and tips about holiday style, organizing, crafts, gardening and more. Created with Zumobi, a premium mobile app network that publishes and monetizes branded media apps, Good Housekeeping’s free app launches with Macy’s as the inaugural advertiser.

The app features the magazine’s popular Stain Buster tool, an A to Z encyclopedia of stain removal advice for fabric, carpet and upholstery.

Good Housekeeping @Home users can search Seal products either by product category or by name.

“This app is an incredibly useful tool,” said Rosemary Ellis, editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping. “Whether you are shopping for mascara or a microwave, you can easily find products that have the protection of the Good Housekeeping Seal, and the Stain Buster puts our solutions right at your fingertips, making it easy to act fast.”
