Meguiars Carpet Cleaner on Seats

Before I tackle the interior, I had to ask because Ive never had seats of this material.

Is Meguiars Carpet Clean okay to use on the FR-S Base seats? The suede-like material...

If not, what is the best affordable solution?

Thanks Guys!

@mcrane I thought that FR-S base seats were cloth.

It works fine on cloth.

Most carpet cleaners are safe to use on cloth seats. Folex is another good product.

Meguiars works super well, an "inebriated" friend dropped a chocolate chip cookie on the seat and the chocolate morsels got rubbed in I used this stuff off amazon:
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-G9719-Carpet-Upholstery-Cleaner/dp/B009OBW5XQ"]Amazon.com: Meguiar's G9719 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner - 19 oz.: Automotive[/ame]

Sprayed down the area, used a nylon scrubbing brush and then spray with water and wiped off and it worked.

I boil distilled water, then wet terry cloth and wipe seats. The cloth is hot but not burning hot. Then rinse, and re-wipe. If really dirty area like a stain, I wet the area a tad more and use vacuum to suck up leftover water. Once dry, I brush the alcantara with a soft brush.

My friend uses a alcantara BMW foam spray. Not sure where she buys it.
