Best way to get dirt out of cloth seats?

I got a pair of seats which have had dirt on them for a couple years, I was wondering, what's the best way to rid of all of that without redying the seats or taking the cloth off? Thanks.

We have one of those Bissell 'steam cleaners' (actually a water/soap spray & vacuum to immediately suck out the wash water) and it works super on upholstery and carpet using their soap. Ours has the floor wand and an optional hand held wand that is great for car interiors. These can be rented at a grocery store for not a lot.

Take them out, pull all of the hog rings out and toss them in the washer on delicate. I've done that to almost every car I've had. It will take about a day but well worth it.

Spray some water on the seats then spray compressed air into the seats and blot up whatever comes out with a folded dry towel. For tough spots windex does a good job.
