I know that the "wash and dry" laundy shops where you pay by the weight are fairly common in Malaysia. This being Singapore, though, the affluence of the country may not lend itself to corner laundry stores in the same way that central New York City or London likely doesn't have wash and dry laundries readily available.
We are staying at the Mandarin Oriental after a sojourn around Asia and expect to have some laundry that, really, we don't want to use the hotel services to pay S$10 per piece to just get some sweaty t-shirts and other vacation clothes washed - basically, a rinse in detergent and dry will do. Otherwise, our laundry will likely run us S$200 for our load :)
Any suggestions of places where we could drop off 3-4 kgs of t-shirts, pajamas and socks near the Mandarin or Marina Mandarin and pick up the next day or so? Willing to get to the Bugis or Bencoolen area if that is somewhere where we can find a shop.
Thanks in advance
