You can google a search phrase like - best car upholstery stain removers - which will bring up LOTS of commentaries and recommendations, and dozens of odd-named products.

Personally, I would stay with the old standby brand names like DuPont (my favorite) or ArmorAll or Woolite Carpet and upholstery Cleaners - and check its use first on an out-of-sight place to be sure it does not remove or bleach the fabric dyes.

The Woolite foaming carpet cleaner - both the carpet and upholstery one and the pet stain remover - work well, and are easy cluanup - let dry (do not use in very humid conditions) then vacuum up the foam residue. The DuPont and ArmorAll seem to be more aggressive at removing well-bonded stains like intense food coloring or ink.

Note if you have heated seats, be very careful to avoid having it penetrate into the seat cushion, and let dry for at least a day before using heated seat, to be on the safe side - just to avoid frying your buns off, so to speak.
