How to clean the clothing material inside cabin?

I picked up my model S last weekend. The car was kind of dirty inside with fingerprints and footprints inside the cabin. There is appear to be clothing material that surrounds the inside cabin and windows frame. I saw many dark fingerprints. Anyone know how to clean this clothing material?

Any fabric cleaner should work as well as an all purpose cleaner (APC) if you have any. I use either 303 Spot Cleaner or Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel. Here's a huge list of fabric cleaners.

Don't rub hard into the fabric, spray, let soak, and press-blot dry with a microfiber towel. If that doesn't get it out repeat the process, but this time use a soft brush to lightly agitate the cleaner into the fabric. Blot dry or lightly brush with your microfiber towel.
