No longer works. Here's an updated version made by sorG:


This XML tuning mod disables the annoying autonomous hand washing interaction.

Sims will no longer (automatically) wash their hands, not even after going to the bathroom! And yes, that's kinda gross, but luckily it's just a game.

Install instructions:

Simply place the .package files you've downloaded from this page in your Mods folder.

Mod not working?

Make a new folder in the Mods folder (Located in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods) and name it unpackedmod.
In the Mods folder, open the file Resource.cfg with Notepad and copy and paste this text into the file: DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate and save. (Do not use Save As!)

Mod info:

This is an XML tuning mod. I changed this XML file:


I set the allow_autonomous value to 'false'.


This XML tuning mod will conflict with any mod that changes any value in the following file:
