What is a Dryer Kit? Sounds like a D.I.Y. Kit?
You could always use the launderette for the shirts. Soap powder provided free.
P.s We are on the same voyage.
Dryel is an at-home alternative to dry cleaning. I've never used it, but I know you put the clothes in the dryer with whatever the Dryel thing is and the clothes come out clean. Has to be some kind of chemical thing, and I doubt Cunard would allow that in their dryers.
My husband's suit needed cleaning, and I didn't want to test out the ship's alternative to traditional dry cleaning. Since we had 8 days between our EB and WB crossing, I took the suit to ASDA's cleaner before we left Southampton and retrieved it when we returned. 13 pounds--ouch!! But they did a very good job.
Hello everyone! I know this thread is specifically about QM2 laundry/cleaning, but this pertains to QV. We've utilized the launderette before, which was wonderful, but I saw on the Cunard website that soap tablets can be purchased. Per the Voyage Personalizer:
Is washing machine soap no longer gratis, if using the launderette?
- Each ship has a number of complimentary washing machines, dryers and irons at your disposal. Washing tablets can be purchased on board."
This seems odd. Last month, QM2 still had the little packets of soap in their launderettes.
