This week, the Housekeeping Seal has made its way onto the market, and it’s a truly adorable little creature.
The seal’s name, Good Housekeeping, refers to the fact that it was originally designed to prevent rodents from chewing through the seal’s protective skin.
In a recent article in the Washington Post, a company called the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) described the seal as a “specially designed seal to protect the skin of a seal in an indoor environment.”
Good Housekeeping is a two-legged seal that weighs between 1.5 to 1.7 ounces (1.5-1.9 kilograms) and is about 1 inch (2.3 centimeters) long.
It measures about 5 inches (15 centimeters) wide.
The seal is made of a flexible plastic shell with a smooth texture, and the shell has a hollow center, which allows the seal to expand.
The seal also has a “soft, flexible coating that is very tough and durable.”
“It’s so durable, it’s actually a hard shell,” U.K.-based seal maker, Cottons Seal, told the Washington Times.
“Its just as strong as a hard plastic seal.”
The seal comes with a set of instructions, and users can either pay $9.99 for the plastic seal or $4.99 to have it shipped directly from the U,S.
The “purchase of a housekeeping product is a very important step in ensuring the health and safety of your family, pets, and everyone you care about,” according to the company.
The Good Housekeeper Seal is available online for $29.99, and is currently available at Walmart, Costco, and other retailers.
“The good housekeeper seal was designed to protect against rodent chewing through skin of the seal, and as such it is specially designed to help keep rodent populations at bay,” the USPTO explains.
“The seal also allows the sealing of sealed packages.”
If you’re looking for an affordable way to keep your housekeeping in tip-top shape, the seal may be worth a look.
