    LOL! Congrats! I loved laundry in Sims 3, and I'll love it in 4. My homes have felt incomplete without it. I'm going to start building laundry rooms in all my saves in preparation for the SP next year.

    This will keep my artsy stay-at-home parents a little more busy.

    I agree, the game is too sterile. Even things that get dirty only get dirty once in a blue mood. Maids are entirely useless. I've had the serviced apartment in City Living and thought.... "well, this is pointless". All she did was stand around and then leave.

    Plus, there's the whole issue of traits not meaning anything. A slob sim should definitely drop their clothes on the floor.... and then complain loudly when they have to do a month's worth of wash and pick up all their heaps of dirty, green smoking clothes.

    OK now to make Eco Friendly Laundry Ideas.

    I did research

    Natural Detergent and Stain Removers they tend to be free from Chloride Bleach, Synthetic Fragrance and Dyes. They are often specially formulated to perform well in cold water.

    Non Chlorine Bleach.

    Eco Friendly dryer sheets. I need more research on this.

    Hang the clothes out to dry.

    Make your own Laundry Detergent.

    A washer dryer combo

    Detergentless washer. Need more research on this as well.

    Heat pump dryer. Need more Research

    Condensing Dryer. Need More research.

    I especially like the making your own detergent I can really see Sims doing this being eco-friendly but also creative.

    What do you all think? @KatyJay88 @friendlysimmers @Simanite

    Since it's a "stuff pack" I think all it's going to be is washer, dryer, clothesline and washtub. Which is more new game play objects than any any other Stuff Pack. I believe I read this somewhere on Grahams Twitter or here in Graham's Corner. But these are the main ideas I believe. OH! and the hamper.

    I'd looooove for them to be able to craft detergent (or anything, craft craft craft!) but wouldn't that be additional gameplay stuff?

    Thought as much. Its pretty much going to be limited to "wash, dry, upgrade, etc etc" so coming up with much more than that seems a little pointless.

    i think these are great idea and if the washer is a top load the washer should have a sensor that determines the amount of water that go into the machine if its a modern high efficency washer but if the washer is an old fashion machine like this it should have an option to save the sudy water in a wash sink to reuse the sudsy water for the next load

    i think we should just name the pack something other than eco living to reflect laundry being the main focus

    I just do not get the laundry obsession LOL I mean congratulations but I feel it doesn't add much in terms of game play like the other aspects. But to each their own.

    1. For builders and decorators, it means a whole new room to build and decorate.

    2. Maids and butlers will actually have something to do

    3. Family players will use them constantly, and it gives stay-at-home parents/grandparents more to do while kids and spouses are at work.

    The second one is very true. My butler does far too much fake cleaning for how much I pay him lmao

    I never said all players play the same, quit acting like I need to play the same way you do. You're a middle aged man for crying out loud. Learn boundaries. I know you've probably got some disability that makes it impossible for you but do try.

    Except my sims that have maids or butlers have nice houses, I just can't see the washer and dryers that will be included using in nicer homes

    I think they'll end up including the scrub board, a cheap-o looking set, and another nicer looking set. All it really needs is to be a basic maytag design really. I grew up around nice houses with super fancy laundry rooms and they had basic washing machines in them.

    I play both middleclass and rich sims my rich sims have butlers middle class do not. So I see a need for butlers that can help out with laundry.
