Embroidered Floor Mat cleaning

What is the best product for cleaning embroidered mats? The stiching is dirty and would like to brighten it up without the threads coming apart.

thanks

BLACKFIRE All N One All Purpose Cleaner is what I thinking you should use.

Dilute BLACKFIRE All N One All Purpose Cleaner with 4-5 parts water to 1 part of the cleaner. Use a measuring cup or graduated spray bottle. Always add water first to avoid any type of foaming for more better results, then vacuum thoroughly to remove any loose soiling or dirt on the mats. Because BLACKFIRE All N One All Purpose Cleaner removes with minimal flushing it is not necessary to use water to remove residue, although it is good practice when using any All Purpose Cleaner. Lightly mist your microfiber towel with diluted BLACKFIRE All N One All Purpose Cleaner. BLACKFIRE All N One very effective at spot cleaning carpets & upholstery. Lightly scrub the area and blot area dry with your microfiber towel. Remember to always test a small area first for any type of color fastness.

Avoid heavy scrubbing regardless of the cleaner you use (as it sounds like you already know) and no brushes!

Stick to blotting with any cleaning you do on embroidery. Spray Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner onto a short knap mf towel, blot at the area to pull up any dirt.

If you have access to a carpet extractor or shampooer with the ability to shut off the agitator you can use that as well and it will do a much better job on heavier contamination.
