I really enjoyed the little bit of this house I saw. It's so lush, vivid and fertile! I would actually like to see an house tour.

Ok, maybe it's just me, but is no one a slightly unsettled at the image of the dog? He appears to have red eyes.

On Having A Bedroom Without Any Walls | Apartment Therapy Chicago

In the past, it has been suggested running an empty cycle with hot water filled with a bottle of white vinegar to eliminate soapy residue. In the perfect world, I would do that every time I wash. I, unfortunately, live in the real world where it costs me $1.50 to wash clothes and after a while that starts adding up.
So, my question is this: to get rid of the any laundry detergent, is it a good idea to just wipe the inside of a washing machine with a wash cloth that has been soaked in a water/vinegar solution or does filling a downy ball with vinegar eliminate any dirt left inside?

Thanks for the tip, stegersaurus. I think I'll actually try wiping the inside of a washing machine with either a microfiber or wipes.
I have also started air drying some of my clothes -mostly sweaters and hand washables- on my drying rack which has surprisingly saved me from using a dryer several times. Yet, I have not been able to wean myself off of dryers. Hopefully one day I'll get there.

What techniques can I implement to green my laundry that don't clash with keeping costs down when living in an apartment building where it costs $2.75/per load (both washing and drying)?
I applaud the idea of running a cycle of white vinegar to dislodge any dirt that might have accumulated in the washing machine. However, that's $1.50 down the drain and I don't want to run a cycle without any clothes.
So, with all that said, what tips or ideas are there for those individuals who don't have a washer and dryer in their home.
