* The Washboard Laundromat


I built this launderette/laundromat (depending on which side of the pond you live), quite some time ago and haven't given it much thought since. It's currently residing in my Sunset Valley, on the corner of Mirabello Road, just opposite where the original hospital sat and on the land that was previously occupied by the art gallery. Though the art gallery lot was demolished and replaced with a smaller parcel of land. I think it's 30 x 20, but will have to go back into my game to check and can't be arsed right now.

It has a cupcake cafe attached to it's backside, because I could - and it has all been playtested. You may want to remove the dukebox, as random sims turn up for a boogie when your playable sim is washing his smalls. I quite liked that though, the madness of the SV sims is always entertaining :)

Also, I succumbed and used laundry type items from the Town Life SP, and a neon Car Wall hanging thingy from Fast Lane. It's all easily replaced with objects from Ambitions though (was ambitions the one where we got laundry????). If ya want it, the download and it's details are at the bottom of this page...

  3. I really like this and I'm not really a laundry type person. I guess living on an island all these years and having to do to hot laundrys all the sims in my game I try to fit a laundry room somewhere. This establishment I wouldn't mind frequenting, even if other sims come to boogy-down.

    1. Thankyou! I hope your sims enjoy any impromptu partying at the launderette, mine certainly can't help shaking their thangs when their supposed to be busy folding socks!!!

    1. Thankyou very much, Jody! I envy the Sims the speed in which their homes and gardens are refurbsihed. If only real life had a button we could click that would do the same ;0) xx
