Keep a squirt bottle of hydrogen peroxide under the kitchen sink. Spray down those countertops and cutting boards, and wipe clean with a paper towel or rag. You are then good to go.
....Or you could keep a squirt bottle of 50/50 white vinegar and water with 5-6 drops of tea tree or lavender oil mixed in and use the same process!
Want a fast fabric softener but don't have one on hand and don't want to have to mix it up?
Drop a capful (approximately 1/4 cup) of white vinegar in your load of laundry and they will come out feeling nice and soft!
While this one isn't exactly "natural" - this is my go-to for stains in the clothes. With a baby in the house and plenty of action flying around, inevitably a shirt or some sort of clothing gets something in it that will stain. When I have a chance, I pour some Dawn dish soap (it does have to be Dawn, at least, in my experience) and scrub it into the fabric. I let it sit for about 15 minutes, then rinse it out. I then place that wet article of clothing in front of a window to let it get natural light (it does not need to be sunny - just natural light). I check it the next day to make sure it looks like the stain is getting out. If it is, it goes in with the next load of laundry. If not, I repeat the process. I've never had to do it more than twice. This works for oil and grease stains, as well.
If it is not a really bad stain, I will simply dampen the clothes with water, and place it in the natural light in front of the window (living in a rainy, cloudy climate has taught me that it does not need to be sunny!). I leave it for a day, and then throw it in the wash with the rest of the clothes!
