Marked upholstery

I have tried numerous products, but the seats in my beloved little panda 100 are marked to hell and back. Kids have dropped pepsi and other things. What and how can i remove them. I have tried all the main brands like meguiars, mer and autoglym. Nothing. Suggestions from the serial detailers please.

Re: Marked upholstery

I've never really had much success with upholstery cleaning products that get sprayed on, turn into foams, etc. Ultimately, as well as leaving the dirt behind, they all seem to leave a residue which attracts more dirt. On my 4x4 (the 4x4's have pale grey centre sections to the seats, which really show the dirt), the best 'weapon' is the Vax carpet cleaning machine, using its dedicated upholstery 'brush'. Using carpet shampoo in the machine, this has always washed the seats clean and got them 'nearly' dry pretty well instantly.
