Do any of you guys know if I can take a solid bar of soap onto a flight in my hand luggage? All the info seems to say liquids, gels and pastes need to be no more than 100ml/grams, but I don't think soap would counts as any of those..? I've tried to find an answer on the Ryanair website and various others but they're really vague.

Just want to make sure as I bought some expensive shaving soap as a gift to take to a family member and didn't think of it until now - wouldn't want to have to throw it away at the airport (don't think it'll fit in my plastic resealable bag with all my other toiletries)!

Thanks!

If it's a gift for someone, could you put it in your main luggage that goes in the hold?
The restrictions on liquids apply to hand luggage only.
I don't think it would count as a liquid anyway

I would, but I'm only taking hand luggage and not checking a bag into the hold (didn't fancy paying 10 for the privilege).

Ah I see, you did say Ryanair, I should've known!

As long as it's a solid bar it should be fine, I'm sure 'liquids' mean bottled ones.
I wasn't sure if I could take wet wipes last time I flew, but it turned out to be fine.

It might be an idea to take a stamped envelope big enough to fit the soap in just in case they don't let you through. At least that way you can post it home and you won't have to throw it away.

That's a good idea, will do that! Hope there's a postbox at Stansted...

Mind you, this is Ryanair ....... You might get onto the plane with the soap but what's the betting the cabin crew confiscate it for some reason or other and then use it themselves!

Do make sure you don't let them charge you for using the soap dispenser in the toilet if you've got your own!!!

Oooops .... edit .... Just noticed it's 'shaving soap'. So watch out for any bearded cabin crew or flight crew -----
