If you're into fashion, you should be into fabric care. Just ask laundry aficionado and Grammy award-winning John Mayer, who teamed up with us to create Way Out West Laundry Detergent, an expertly-crafted formula infused with a fine fragrance for your threads. This all-purpose, plant-derived detergent delivers clothes that look, feel, and smell their absolute best, with ingredients that brighten, preserve color, and remove stains.

"I first discovered The Laundress products over six years ago, and we aligned so organically on the philosophy that if you love fashion, you should be into fabric care," said John Mayer. "I find something so meditative about the process, which makes laundry day a very soothing ritual for me. Way Out West is an extension and embodiment of that passion, and I am so proud to introduce everyone to the new collection." - John Mayer

Everyday items are made of cotton, linen, or durable synthetics: socks, cotton underwear, T-shirts, khakis, button-down shirts, and sheets and towels. Way Out West Laundry Detergent contains a unique combination and concentration of highly-effective cleaning enzymes. These ingredients provide a deep clean that removes stains, washes away odors, and brightens laundry for noticeably beautiful laundry.

The most intense cleaning is achieved with hot water and a long cycle. We recommend adjusting the water temperature and cycle setting for the level of cleaning required (dirtiness) and size of the wash load. For example, white sheets and towels are best laundered with hot water and a long wash cycle, while everyday colors can be laundered using a normal cycle with warm or cold water.
