SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2021

Like many of us, parents are looking for more sustainable ways to live and teach their children about the fragile state of our environment. To that end, many of our parent testers have told us how they are trying to decrease their plastic usage, their carbon footprint, and their use of reusable items, so they were excited to discover the Rakot75 cloth towel. Packaged like regular one-time use paper towels – on a roll with perforations – you will find individual towels that are large and more than capable of cleaning big surfaces. The company claims that they are durable, and after putting them to the most demanding tests, our reviewers agree. You’ll immediately be impressed by how thick each sheet feels. Then you will be off the races, finding new uses for the towels. Parent testers cleaned spills, dried fruits and vegetables, and cleaned up their children after meals. The towels consistently held up against water, dirt, and food. The next challenge was to test the claim that they are reusable. We took the soiled towels and tossed them in the washing machine. Only using regular detergent and following the washing and drying instructions, the Rakot75 towels came out clean, as though they had never been used, and still felt fluffy soft. Parents were delighted and excited to begin replacing both paper towels and hand towels around their homes.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

FALL ‘22

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
