Default How to best clean sti seats?

Title basically encompasses my question, i've heard steam cleaning works well, is that my best bet or is there some good cleaner to use? By the way are the sti seats suede?

Steam cleaning has worked the best for me. It was even able to remove a melted M&M stain on my passenger seat.

Oops my fault, I asked the guy that washes/details my car (comes once a week to my office). He said he shampooed and vacuumed it. He did not steam it.
