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

***STANDALONE works with latest update***

***DEFAULT OVERRIDE BROKE with latest update***

Made with game version

Update - 4 June 2020

Sadly, the default override version of this hamper broke with the latest patch, 1.63. I do not have an ETA as to when, or if, it will be fixed.

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 - BROKEN as of patch 1.63.134
