For cloth seats that are stained try the foaming upholstery cleaner they sell in the auto parts store. Foam it up good and let it soak in for a few minutes. After it has sit for a bit scrub away. Try not to get them too wet as it will take forever to dry.

For a beater? Sure you can if you want to fork out $200 or more.

Get some 303 fabric clenaer, or Megs APC+ or wolfgang interior cleaner. Try doing some searches on the detailing forums like those on autogeek.net etc... amazing what a little is needed and can go a long way. I have even bought a little green machine, used one of the above comos and it cleaned some serious stuff that went no where near as high as you would pay for a one time detailing job. AND you get to keep all the stuff.
