***This hamper requires Laundry Day Stuff to work in your game!!!***

***Works with latest update***

Made with game version

I was disappointed when SimGuruGraham announced that EA would not make any of the deco laundry bins from previous packs backwards compatible with the new laundry system in the Laundry Day Stuff Pack. I really like the canvas hamper from Parenthood and I looked around the Internet but could not find any modded versions. So here I present to the Simmer community, the Functional Parenthood Laundry Basket. Enjoy!

P.S. It looks like EA fixed the initial placement issues with patch 1.41. You can now safely place the hamper against the wall and/or underneath shelves.

2 Flavors
DO = Default Override
SA = Standalone

  • Works best if Sim has a clear path to both hamper and laundry machines
