How to clean car interior fabric without making it wet

Hello
My car has orange stains that have been set a long time ago. I've cleaned the upholdtery fabric with car upholstery nad fabric cleaner and the stains did not go. How can I clean the carpet and upholstery without wetting the fabric and making it wet?
Thanks in advance

I just spilled some string bean juice on my car seat. I'd like to hear some suggestions as well- I was going to febreeze it, but I doubt that will work.

Edit: I wouldn't mind learning ways to clean the seat even if it involves getting the seat wet as well.

There is a carpet cleaning product called Capture that used to be available at Sears. It works wonderfully on carpet and therefore should also work on other fabric. It is a powder you rub around and then vacum up.

You eat canned string beans in your car?

...

A lot of good products exist for cleaning cars. Check out the nearest mega mart. Look for one of those foaming products with the plastic brush nozzle.

I did some detailing for a while. I would use either oxiclean or woolite mixed 10 parts water to 1 part woolite. I did wet the interior, used a brush dipped in solution. Then would shopvac the interior to pull out most of the solution. Then would use a spray bottle with water to rinse more solution out, followed by shopvac. Leaving the car running with the heater blasting for a couple of hours while polishing and waxing the exterior would dry out the car. Even worked in 40 deg. temps.

No, it was a tray of string beans from a Chinese buffet. I was bringing the stuff back for a lunch/conference thing.

I'll see what I can find at the stores.
