    I use the baking soda and essential oil mixture on carpets and rugs. No water. Sprinkle it on the carpet/rug and brush it in with a broom. Let it set for about an hour then vacuum. For room and furniture I mix 10 drops of essential oils with vodka in a spray bottle. Spray the room and furniture. The vodka evaporates and the scent remains.

        Leather is always such a hard material to decide how to clean. Because it can be easily damaged. I would guess yes, but that's just guessing. I'd do a patch test to see what works for your furniture.
