I used diluted Simple Green on my shifter knob stitching. It did not appear to do much when wet, but once the stitching dried, it is considerably better.

You can use 303 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner for cleaning those stitching because it will suspend the particles so the stain or dirt can be easily wiped away and it's biodegradable. Just remember to test a area first when using a cleaner anywhere in your interior of the car.

Adams leather cleaner on stering wheel and shifter and seats. Adams Upolstery cleaner on the rest. Adams leather conditioner on the aforemetioned leather spots.

It makes it the interior smell like new.

A soft brush will make any of these products work better. Then just wipe dry and re-condition the leather.
