Default Steam clean upholstery?

Just wondering.. these stains are being replaced by stains from the commercial cleaners I've used (Oxy Power out, Blue Coral, Simple Green..). The seat covers I've seen are sorta cheezy IMO, and leather would be great but is WAY expensive to me. Anybody replace the original fabric upholstery at the dealship? Or steam clean? I'm hoping someone that dealt with this will help me think outside of the box a little. Thanks!!

What I've done - cleaner like simple green lightens the area where it's applied.
What I did was soak the entire seat with water and apply the cleaner to the whole seat and use a brushto scrub - it blends in the cleaned area so it's not noticeable.
