1. Identify the material and its finish

2. Identify the type of stain (a) Water Soluble Stains- These stains can be dissolved in cool water or loosened with water based cleaner, coffee; soft drinks, cocoa and chocolate are good examples.

b) Oil soluble stains- These are stains that are comprised of oily or greasy substances, which include cooking, oil from fried foods and suntan oil.

c) Combination Stains- These stains contain both water based and oil-soluble properties. Cleaning these stains require treatment with a petroleum solvent followed by water based cleaning solution.

d) Unidentifiable Stains- Sometimes stains cannot be identified. Treat these stains like a combination stain. Clean with a petroleum solvent followed by water based cleaner.

Then select a pH appropriate chemical / cleaner that is biodegradable, environmentally friendly and safe to use by observing any precautions recommended so that they won’t harm you, your vehicle or the environment

That's not plastic, it is a very thin wood veneer that has been clearcoated. Try a damp microfiber first to remove the dirt and go from there but a mild plastic polish should take care of it followed by a wax.

That seat looks dirty and all the seats could probably use a good scrubbing. I like LeatherMasters to clean, then protect.

The headliner stain could be most anythingbut any good cloth cleaner should work. Make sure you try the cleaner in a place that's not visible to make sure that it doesn't discolor.

Wow, that seat looks like an a$$. How can people let their cars be that dirty, not your fault OP, I see you got it CPO.

Leather Masters Strong cleaner for seats

Sonax Upholstery cleaner for headliner. If that wont cut it, try any of the chem guys stuff, that will cut it for sure

The last one is I don't know as I fail to see the defect
