There are quite a few good products out there, unfortunately what is one person's "best" may not be another persons - kind of an opinion thing really. Personally I use Adam's.

I would imagine any good leather cleaner would work, but I have never worked on mohave leather.

It is not leather in the strict sense - any plastic cleaner will work fine - read here from 303 why you don't have "Leather"

Yes, our seats are vinyl coated however using a leather cleaner will not harm them. If you are concerned on what you are using just look out for streakyness, brightness, and tackiness. If you get any of this you are just applying way to much. So with that said you can use

Zaino, Adams, Zymol, letherique pristine, Connelly's, and Polish Angel. Also Ultima Into or, 303,P21 and even a mild APC.

Leatherique is the best leather restoration and/or maintenance product there is for genuine leather. I dunno about the fake crap that 75% of our leather seats is made of.

Almost all of them have no scent. I use Gtechniq W2 (10:1) to clean and Werkstat Satin Prot to dress. Neither has a scent.

I just noticed my 5 month old interior already has some blue discoloration where I slide in. I wear jeans so I assume this is dye from them somehow.
i have tried a few things nothing has been able to get it out. Mothers, and another off the shelf leather cleaner..
what can I use?

You shouldn't have no problems what so ever, did you get Leathrique Pristine??? I have used more leather products on our "vinyl" seats with no adverse effect. So look at bright spots, the seats being tacky and streaks. Remember a little goes a long way and if you are concerned or neverous you can always do a test spot.

WOW while I am at it talking about Leatherique Prisine Clean, that will work wonders for you. Also to the naysayers Leatherique Pristine Clean is perfectly safe on our seats.

I generally just use a diluted APC on coated seats. Something like D101 or GTechniq W2 at 10:1 works great for me.

Here are some pics of what I did today with those:

Yes I did. It works fine on our "leather" seats.

Following the suggestion in this thread, I bought some Mister Clean Magic Erasers - it didn't help with the bleed from my belt in the driver seat. Annoying.
