This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Now that upload submissions are back online I present to you the "Sims Must Wash Hands" Sign converted from TS2 for use in TS3.

It costs 70 simoleons (the original price) and can be found under Decor> Paintings or Bathroom> Accents.
It has three presets; the original design plus two extras. There are four recolourable channels.

I hope you and your Sims find it useful!

Polygon Counts:
Both high and low LODS = 36 polygons each.

Additional Credits:
Texture Tweaker,
Tags: #hands, #wash, #hygene, #clean, #wall, #sign

Style: Contemporary
Room: Kitchen Bathroom
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Aaaactually, Shivar has a mod that makes Sims wash their hands 75% of the time automatically after using the toilet. Clean Sims will do so 100% of the time and Slobs will never wash their hands.
It makes a few other changes as well. I use it in my own game and it still works fine with 1.50.

Oooh, man, this is perfect. I love these sorts of things- deco that make things feel more "official" eheheheh.

I played TS2 so much before TS3 that I am always looking for deco items (like this one) and then remembering "oh, yeah, that's TS2, not TS3!" So, thanks for converting this!

I was building a Bowling Alley. At the bathroom section, I was thinking about that sign last night! Now today, this sign is uploaded on Mod The Sims! What a coincidence!

It's awesome that you made it CAStable. I'm only disappointed (and disgusted) that more people haven't downloaded this. I guess everyone's ok with poopy sims hands.
