@crinrict 

I tried moving the household out and back in, and they are still not being able to clean dishes. They will pick them up, sometimes collect a few, and then put them back down on the table. Other times, it says that I can't "clean up" because "A trash can or sink is required to clean this up." 

 

I deleted the hanging pots, and any decorations around the sink as well (and the poster behind the sink), and nothing changed. 

 

It's not really a problem since I can just drag and drop the plates to the trash, and I'm planning on moving houses anyways soon, but I just find it strange.

Guess taking a look at your save is next then.

 

Would you be willing to share that as well ?

 

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox,, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.

Hi @Dyute171 

 

I have found the issue in your house (I think).

 

The trouble is, that Sims seem to like to put dirty dishes in empty shelf slots .. but then they can't retrieve them.

When you tell them to retrieve the ones on the table, they also want to retrieve the ones on the shelves and then fail cause they can't reach it. The same used to happen (it's supposed to be fixed) if there's dishes on half walls.

 

There's also a dish in the upper bathroom on the floor but I don't know how much of an issue that one poses. It's def the ones on the shelves that make them route fail.

 

If you manually remove them, it should be fine.
