[UNSURE] [ECO] Not all salvaged items can be refurbished

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except Moschino
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Blackened items found in the dumpster. Some items can be cleaned or repairs, but furniture items like tables and chairs are useless. The only option available is to replace the item.
What happens when the bug occurs? When trying to refurbish items picked from the trash
What do you expect to see? Options available
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Eco Lifestyle

The EL live stream said that we would be able to refurbish all items we get out of the trash, but most items are useless unless you spend the money to replace it... even for freegan sims.

Re: Not all salvaged items can be refurbished

@Willowana Seems Items that come out Burnt (chairs/tables) can be repaired with the smog vacuum or a spell

Have you tried that ?

Happy Gaming
