I have read about using vodka with coloring to make the stain look of wooden floor. Can vanilla be used instead for a nice effect?

Do you mean to use the vanilla in place of the vodka? If so the answer is yes. If you mean to use the vanilla itslef as the coloring agent, I would guess that it probably won't give you the effect you're looking for.

Vanilla tends to be stickier than vodka but you can still use it. I think some people use lemon extract as well.

Thanks! Yes I was wondering if vanilla could be substituted for vodka. Sillywabbitz: would lemon extract have a sticky application like the vanilla extract?

I was told but haven't ever done it that lemon is less sticky than vanilla. Just thinking about the tops of my bottles that is true. My vanilla bottle is sticky around the edge. My lemon extract stays clean. I honestly just use the cheapest vodka I can findicon_smile.gif
