What kind of upholstery is it? Leather, plastic or cloth? If it is a cloth material you can use a steamer or a carpet cleaning machine with furniture attachment after it is pretreated with cleaning fabric foam.

I would try using oxyclean laundry detergent. It works to clean baseball caps that nothing else will clean. Try it on a test location like mpilch suggests to be sure it doesnt discolor the fabric.

It depends upon the spots; what are they?

We've used a product called Kids and Pets, which I've found at Wal-Mart, and it works quite well and doesn't have a harsh chemically scent.

I like Scotchgard Fabric and Upholstery Cleaner. I use it in the house and the car. Its like a dry foam that you apply, rub in and then vacuum out. It cleans really well and also leaves behind a protectant to repel stains in the future.

I've used Resolve carpet clear with great results. But they also offer a multi fabric cleaner. Just follow the direction on the back for upholstery. Test it on a location of the coach that isn't seen much to make sure it doesn't discolor the fabric.
