Default Grey interiors - how do you clean your headliners & doors?

Hey guys. I have a few stains on my headliner that really bug me, but I can't seem to find a way to clean em up. I don't want to scrub at that material too much because I have a feeling it could a little ugly with too much scrubbing. I also can't seem to get my rubber/plastic armrest areas on the doors totally clean ... what's best to clean these things? Any suggestions?

Always used this stuff on my cars. Wifey uses it on the microfiber couch when the kids get out of hand too...

Tuff stuff at O'Reillys works wonders. Had a couple minor spots on my liner and it's just a spray and wipe solution. Took it right out.

I'll give that stuff a try, thanks! So I shouldn't have to scrub much, right? I don't want to ruin the fabric. Does that stuff work on the 'rubber' door panels too?

I use tuff stuff with a cheap soft tooth brush if its something deep and works pretty good. Just be gentle with the brush.

Also not to get off topic but not too many 06 V's that are black raven and grey interior. I Have one and trying to keep the grey clean and spotless is a bitch

Folex works great. It won't damage upholstery. I read auto detailing forums and it seems to be the go to. You can pick it up at Lowe's or Home Depot.

Tuff stuff is definitely the way to go bro. I feel like the oxy clean man when I detail my car with it. I have black seats and a grey interior. My sunroof was leaking and made spots and with a small towel and some tuff stuff it looked like new.
