    This is the 2nd time I've seen vodka used. Why vodka?

      Karen. Vodka has no odor. Essential oils mix better with alcohol. Most colognes/perfumes have some form of alcohol in them. It evaporates leaving the scent of essential oils. Water will wet anything it's sprayed on. It's also is not a good suspension for essential oils. Oil and water don't mix.

    Maria. Yes you can use it on leather. Try the spray first. If that doesn't work try the baking soda and essential oil mixture. Just use a few drops of essentil oil in the baking soda. It has to remain a powder. Sprinkle it on the sofa and let it sit for about an hour. Then vacuum and wipe off.
