“The Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff” Review

By  | 
Time for your Sims to air out their Dirty Laundry.

 

The Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff was the first pack to be created with the help of the sims community. In April last year EA announced that SimGuruGraham was starting a new Stuff Pack and they were willing to give us, the player, the opportunity to vote and choose the content of one of their Sims Stuff Packs. It was a great way to be included in the creative process, and while there were a few options to choose from, Laundry won the vote. So, here we are…

The Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff is now available for The Sims 4 on Origin.

Let’s have a look at the stuff included in this pack so you can decide if it is worth your RL simoleons.

Wash Your Wardrobe

Literally, this pack is about Laundry. If you place one of the new hampers in your house, your sim’s clothes will start to get smelly. If they are a slob, or lazy sim, they will leave piles of washing on the floor near them. Of course, these can be taken to the Washing Machine (or Tub) to be washed. Unlike laundry in The Sims 3, this had to be done quite often, but in the Sims 4, you can choose to do it as often or only do it once a week and still take advantage of the moodlets.

Handy Sims can upgrade the washing machine to create better washes, and therefore happier sims.

 

Build a Rustic Home

The details are amazing in this pack. Buy mode has some awesome new additions including the “Wicker Whims” wicker set, and some really amazing “bohemian” type decorations. This makes it great to add to any household really, whether you are Living off the Grid in rural country, or in a Stylish Apartment in the ‘burbs. There are 14 colours of the washing machines and dryers to go with it. Which is AMAZING — But one thing.

PLEASE remember to clean the lint tray before drying your clothes. Fire may come raining down from the sim dryer heavens.

 

Dress in Country Style

Create a Sim is always a highlight in the Stuff Packs because they always have so much detail. Of course the team has not slacked on the content, it just seems a bit light on options this time around. There are a couple of staples, like crop tops and some amazing suede boots (love!!) so that makes this simmer happy. Although, I would have loved to see more boho or hippy clothes, and possibly more dirty clothes! Because, well… that’s the name of the game!
